The Legendary Shaw Festival Presents Mesmerizing 2021 Season

Published on July 30, 2021

The 2021 Shaw Festival runs from May 1 to December 23. This major not-for-profit theatre festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada is the second-largest repertory theater company in North America. 

Founded in 1962, its original mandate was to stimulate interest in George Bernard Shaw and his period and to advance the development of theatre arts in Canada. 

Once again, audiences will be mesmerized with both a breathtaking show and delicacies from the best chefs.  This epic theatrical event includes a special luncheon featuring farm-to-table menus from Niagaras finest chefs, paired with regional wines. 

Pre-book your seat and don’t miss this legendary festival!
