Canada 150 Signature Event and Matthew Good Concert
Scotiabank Convention Centre
Niagara Falls knows how to throw a party, and our Canada 150 Signature event will be a highlight of 150 Fun Fest in the Falls. On Saturday August 26th, a day- long celebration of everything Canadian will take place at the Scotiabank Convention Centre. During the day, there will be plenty of free family friendly fun, including a children’s area, Mini Comic Con, an art showcase, and food trucks featuring quintessential Canadian foods. We are excited to announce that Juno award winning Matthew Good with special guests The Blue Stones will headline an evening of great Canadian entertainment for a 19+ licensed event. There is limited capacity - so circle your calendar and plan to arrive early! Doors will open at 7pm. Mayor Jim Diodati encourages the community to come celebrate Canada’s 150th year. “It’s all about having fun and celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday as a community. I invite you and your family and friends to come out and enjoy an incredible event, lots of music, food, free fun and games, and to wish Canada a happy birthday in true Niagara Falls style!” More information about the Canada 150 Signature event will be released leading up to the event date.
