All Canadian New Year’s Celebration in Niagara Falls

We are happy to announce that this year’s New Year’s Celebration in Niagara Falls is featuring an all Canadian line up! Canadian rockers Serena Ryder and The Sam Roberts Band will headline this year's free New Year's Eve concert at Queen Victoria Park.

The award winning Sam Roberts Band had their 2001 debut release, The Inhuman Condition, which became one of the bestselling independent releases in Quebec and Canadian music history. They recently released their new album TERRAFORM on October 28th 2016, which we are excited to hear live on December 31st!

Also joining the New Year’s stage is Serena Ryder, a Toronto born singer, song writer with a few amazing awards under her belt. Serena has won four Juno Awards that include: 2008 New Artist of The Year, 2009 Adult Alternative Album of The Year (Is It O.K.), 2010 Video of The Year (Little Bit of Red) and 2013 Adult Alternative Album of The Year.

But, thats not all, rounding out the New Year’s lineup is Canada’s Country Duo, High Valley, as well as Niagara’s very own rock band, James Blonde.

Listen to some great tunes, and enjoy the variety of on-site food and beverages that will be available, along with a licensed area. All the fun begins at 8:00PM that night, so come on out and celebrate with family, friends and loved ones until the magnificent fireworks are launched at midnight to bring in the new year.

Adding to the ‘wow’ factor this year, will be the new lighting on the Horseshoe and American Falls, as a part of the revitalization projection by the bi-national Niagara Fall Illumination Board.
