Pumphouse Members’ are invited to drop by our Members’ Lounge during show hours to relax and mingle while listening to music, and enjoying free coffee, tea, wine, and treats. The Lounge will be located by the gazebo, overlooking the river and is one of the many new members’ benefits being created this year. If you aren’t a member of the Pumphouse yet, you can stop by the front desk and purchase an individual membership for only $40 or a family membership for $55.

Visitors will also be able to tour the heritage brick building. It is the oldest surviving pump house in the Niagara Region. The abandoned water pumping station (circa 1891) was purchased by the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake and through community effort and fundraising the building was restored and converted to become the unique Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre. The original pump, which once supplied water to the Town of Niagara on the Lake, remains on display in a garden.
