The impressive list of live entertainment venues and events around Niagara Falls includes Avalon Ballroom at the Fallsview Casino, Greg Frewin Theatre, Bird Kingdom, Spring in Bloom Concert, and the Oh Canada Eh? Dinner Show.

Fallsview Casino concerts at the Avalon Ballroom are attracting increasingly popular acts in 2008. This Spring, visitors to the newest Niagara casino can see Gary Sinise and The Lt. Dan Band (March 28 & 29), Gladys Knight (April 3 & 4), Ray Charles (April 7-13), Chicago (May 8 & 9), Ringo Starr and His All-Starr Band (June 6 & 7) and Grand Funk Railroad (June 27 & 28), among many more.

The Greg Frewin Theatre is a Niagara entertainment must-see for a family night out. One of the most celebrated magicians in the world, Greg Frewin presents "Beyond Belief," a Las Vegas Style Magical Review, right in the heart of town. A favourite sightseeing attraction on a Niagara Falls vacation is the Bird Kingdom which also features daily live entertainment. From Lorikeet Feeding and Bat Feeding to Interactive Reptile Encounters and the Wings of the World Bird Show, Bird Kingdom offers an engaging and educational experience for adults and children.

In addition to the Fallsview Casino concerts, visitors looking for live music will enjoy the Winter Festival of Lights' Spring in Bloom Concerts.

Many Niagara hotels have created vacation packages just for Niagara trips around this special event.

For a truly Canadian experience, the award-winning Oh Canada, Eh? Dinner Show runs year-round. Not only do the performers (including Mounties, lumberjacks, and hockey players) sing Canadian songs from the cozy confines of their log cabin theatre, they also deliver dinner-serving up authentic and tasty Niagara entertainment for the whole family.
