A celebratory night of culture and family fun is coming to Niagara-on-the-Lake, with the Canada Summer Games’ 13 for 13  Cultural Festival. 

The Games are holding festivals from Aug. 7 to 20, linking Niagara’s 13 municipalities in collaboration with Canada’s 13 provinces and territories. 

The festival will allow Niagara residents to experience Canada without having to leave the region, festival organizers say. 

Niagara-on-the-Lake’s 13 for 13 party is at Simcoe Park on Wednesday, Aug. 10, from 2 to 10 p.m. NOTL is partnered with British Columbia.

“The town hopes that families will come out to enjoy this event at Simcoe Park and continue to explore Niagara-on-the-Lake,” said Town of NOTL spokesperson Marah Minor.

“Whether you are a resident or a visitor, the town hopes that this event brings excitement to all as there is something for everyone.”

The town received a $15,000 contribution from B.C.’s tourism ministry to help fund the 13 for 13 festival. 

Among things to look forward to at the NOTL festival are a concert by Juno Award-winning artists Said The Whale, from Vancouver, Minor said.

As well, there will be NOTL artists, bite-size menus prepared by NOTL restaurants and a farmers market.
