2016 Shaw Festival Season

Shaw Festival Theatre

The venerable Shaw Festival returns for another stand-out season. The festival, which takes place in downtown Niagara-on-the-Lake, located approximately 25 minutes from our hotel, is known as one of the world’s top live theatre festivals, generally lasting 9-10 months each year.
