Peaches and cars and music, oh my. A jam-packed, busy weekend in NOTL

This weekend is packed with a little bit of fun for everyone in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

For all things peachy, head over to Queen Street on Saturday, Aug. 12, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for the annual Peach Festival.

Food featuring NOTL’s homegrown peaches along with music, entertainment and a pie contest – all sure to make for a great day.

The fruit-filled fun continues on Sunday, Aug. 13, with St. Vincent de Paul Church’s 34th annual Peach Festival at 73 Picton St. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., featuring more goodies and entertainment for all.

On Sunday evening, Queen Street will transform into all hues of pink for the Chamber of Commerce’s Shades of Rosé Dinner from 6 to 11 p.m.

The dress code is strictly pink and guests can enjoy an extensive beverage list and music from the George St. Kitts Band. Book one of the last remaining tables of eight at niagaraonthelake.com/shadesofrose2023

Also on Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., car enthusiasts can support the Kinsmen and Cystic Fibrosis Canada at the 23rd annual Show & Shine car show.

Held at the Kinsmen Scout Hall on the corner of King and Mary streets, the show will include a barbecue, beer tent, T-shirts for sale and more. All cars are welcome and registration is at the gate.

If you’d take chords over cars, the Music Niagara Festival also has a stacked weekend in NOTL, with Emma Meinrenken in recital at St. Mark’s Church on Friday, Aug. 11, at 7 p.m., Kiri Quartet & Friends at Grace United Church on Saturday at 7 p.m. and Masterclasses by Kiri Quartet at 2 p.m. at Grace United, followed by Talents of the Royal Conservatory at Ironwood Cider House at 7 p.m. on Sunday.
