Special Events at Niagara Falls State Park

Niagara Falls State Park is more than just water! There is so much history, lore, ecology and more here that we occasionally offer hikes or walks and talks that focus on some of the items that make us even more special! Great events are held at the park, and also nearby. Please call (716) 284-5154 for more information and registration for these events.
Take in the beauty of Niagara Falls with your family at some great events held periodically at Niagara Falls State Park! Parking in the park is $10, however all events are free unless otherwise noted.
