For ten days in September, over 500,000 visitors are expected to descend on the Niagara wine region for one of the most popular events of the year—the Niagara Wine Festival. Held annually since 1952, the famous fete includes wine tasting, Niagara-on-the-Lake winery tours, regional cuisine and culinary events, artisan shows, wine seminars, and plenty of family entertainment.

    Wow 500,000 people come to it. I had no idea it was so large.

    Regulars should be aware that they’ve changed the passports this year.
    Not only are you paying more ($30)per person, but you are only getting 5 coupons to use at participating wineries (or restaurants).
    You used to pay only $20, and then visit whichever participating winery you wanted, and get your passport stamped.
    Out of the 30 something participating wineries, you now have to pick which 5 you want to go to, or buy more passports!
    Bear in mind that this change is not advertised on any of the websites I’ve seen!
    I don’t know who decided to make the change, but it really puts a damper on the fun!
