The City of Port Colborne is proud of it's vibrant culture and marine heritage. Throughout the year we host various events and festivals including Canal Days, Christmas in Port Colborne, New Year's Eve and Canada Day. These events allow us to engage with the local community, invite visitors to experience the very best of Port Colborne, and partner with various stakeholders. 

Although events and festivals right now may look different because of COVID-19, City staff are finding creative ways for residents to PORTicipate and promote tourism in the area. 

If you would like to plan a special event in Port Colborne utilizing town infrastructure, such as roads or parks you must fill out an Event Application. Our event team will be happy to work with you!

 Reconnect to rediscover Niagara

Niagara municipalities are teaming up to invite residents to get out and rediscover their region.

With COVID-19 restrictions slowly lifting recreation and leisure teams from the City of St. Catharines, Fort Erie, Port Colborne, Niagara Falls, Welland, Pelham, West Lincoln, Lincoln, Niagara-on-the-Lake, Thorold, Grimsby and the Niagara Parks Commission are joining together to host Reconnect to Rediscover Niagara from noon, Aug. 27 to midnight, Sept. 6. The online scavenger hunt, hosted on the GooseChase app, invites Niagara residents from across the region to reconnect with their neighbouring municipalities and rediscover the rich natural landscapes and history they offer.

Using the app participants will be invited to snap photos or videos as they explore locations and attractions across Niagara to complete missions, each mission completed will net points, with participants able to track their progress against others.

The missions are designed in such a way to provide participants with a wholistic glimpse of Niagara, its history and its natural beauty.

More than 20 missions are planned, including exploring the Friendship Trail in Port Colborne; checking out an armored vehicle at the Lake Street Armoury in St. Catharines; Niagara Parks Power Station trivia; and more.

Prizes will be awarded to the most creative family or team entry and to point leaders. First-, second- and third-place packages for point leaders include gift cards to local businesses and Niagara-themed merchandise packages from the Niagara Parks Commission. The most creative family or team will pick up a one-night stay at Great Wolf Lodge, including waterpark access, alongside a Niagara Parks Commission family prize pack.
