Entertainment at the dock

Niagara has a long history of Tall Ships, ship building and passenger travel by water. In fact, Niagara-on-the-Lake owes its existence to its important position at the mouth of the Niagara River. On July 3rd and 4th, visitors are welcome to board faithful reproductions of two tall ships: the Mist of Avalon. originally constructed in Nova Scotia in 1967, and the Denis Sullivan from Milwaukee, a reproduction of a cargo schooner that would have plied the lakes 150 years ago.  Thanks to a generous grant from Canada 150, the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, and RendezVous 2017, tours of the ships are free. You will also be able to enjoy live entertainment and the Confederation Celebration revue. Truly an exciting and unique experience for Niagara-on-the-Lake to celebrate Canada's 150th year of Confederation.
