Parks Canada staff at Fort George National Historic Site have been gearing up for the 2019 season, which began Saturday with the War of 1812 Officers’ Day, when re-enactors showed what upper class life was like in the colonies.
This weekend, two back-to-back events will take to the stage with a Fort George Murder Mystery on Friday, May 24, and Artillery Day, celebrating the Canadian Royal Regiment of Artillery’s 303rd anniversary on Saturday, May 25.
Over the June 22 to 23 weekend, re-enactors from across North America will portray Fort George in the Great War: A First World War Commemoration with military training demonstrations and displays.
Fort George National Historic Site is now open seven days a week for visitors to explore the period buildings, or take in a musket demonstration every hour on the hour. They can also learn some fascinating facts during featured presentations on Saturdays and Sundays.
