Roots on the Twenty, Niagara’s Hottest New Event!

News | May 10, 2017

Niagara’s Twenty Valley in collaboration with Niagara Peninsula Conservation Authority has added another attraction to its annual line-up with a new Spring event – Roots on the Twenty! Dust off your boots and kick up your heels as you explore the history, feel the culture, and sample the best local fare Niagara has to offer.

Roots on the Twenty is a little bit hipster, a smidge country and all about nature and a whole lot of fun! This beautiful two-day event is nestled within the breathtaking Ball’s Falls Conservation Area offering spectacular scenery and natural beauty. In its inaugural year, the event will establish itself as a down-to-earth and unassuming Niagara event, while celebrating a sense of time and place in Canada’s 150-year history.

Unlike any wine and culinary events in Niagara, we are showing off our earthy roots! Presenting the Great Canadian Lumberjacks, a live demonstration of the expertise required for a strong Canadian lumberjack, from axe throwing to wood-chopping. These shows will take place Saturday and Sunday, they are not to be missed!

The White Pine Dancers will bring the power of movement, the rhythm of history and the story of their ancestors with some of the most colourful and award-winning dance. Additional live bands will include talented folk rock with a dash of country music.

Looking for a little more interaction? Interactive axe throwing will be provided by Niagara’s own Bury the Hatchet giving you the opportunity to learn the art axe throwing; other live experiences will have you itching to share with friends and family.

Wait! There is so much more… Ball’s Falls offers a venue rich historical heritage and Canadian culture. Enjoy the beautiful scenery at Ball’s Falls by taking in a nature walk. Enjoy authentic foods from the local chefs serving up some of our countries’ classics and discover why Twenty Valley is the largest wine-producing region in Ontario. Taste the craft beverage movement with local craft brewers and distillers.

Come check out the proud history of Twenty Valley, and explore our small destination full of rich Ontario pride! We guarantee, this ain’t your parent’s bush party! Why wait when you can get your tickets now at!

“We are thrilled to animate great offerings in Niagara’s Twenty Valley. We are highlighting our natural heritage together with our bountiful culinary and craft beverages.” Says Executive Director Kris Smith. “Ball’s Falls is the perfect setting for rustic, homegrown fun!”

“We are excited to partner with the TVTA to host this event. Ball’s Falls combines nature with the history of the Twenty Valley and makes this the perfect setting for this event. We hope that this is only the beginning, and Roots on the Twenty becomes part of the cultural fabric of Niagara.” Mark Brickell, Acting CAO, NPCA

The Twenty Valley is home to the largest wine-producing region with more than 50 wineries, based in the heart of Niagara’s Wine Country. Twenty Valley hosts wine themed events year round including; “Wrapped Up in the Valley”, “Get Fresh in the Valley “and “Winter WineFest.”
