About The Festival

A Niagara Tradition

In its 46th year, the Ball’s Falls Thanksgiving Festival is a Niagara Tradition that normally runs October 9th through October 12th.

The 2020 festival, which was originally conceived as four days of exciting in-person shopping, featuring delicious local food, drinks, artisan vendors, and historical tours and demonstrations has been transformed into a virtual experience.

Join us on this virtual adventure where guests will enjoy heritage village tours and historical demonstrations, as well as music and entertainment, all from the comfort of their home. This year’s virtual event will feature more than 80 juried artisans, vendors, demonstrators and entertainers participating in this long annual tradition.

The first Thanksgiving Festival was held at Ball’s Falls Conservation Area in 1974. The intention was simple: to raise money for conservation and environmental programs that were not otherwise funded. This remains the purpose of the Festival today. From its humble beginnings as a one-day craft show, the event has become a family tradition.

Please note that no vendors will be on site this year. The online shopping experience takes place September 12 to October 7. On-site heritage tours and demonstrations will take place at Ball’s Falls Conservation Area October 9 to 12. Reservations are mandatory for individual visitors and groups up to 10.
