This signature event is presented in partnership with the St. Lawrence Bicentennial Alliance in commemoration of the War of 1812. Visitors will be able to head out to the hill on 30 June to witness an 1812 encampment and re-enactments, take a tour of the new Discovery Centre, and take part in daily activities, including the opportunity to fire a historic weapon! Well-known historians Gary Gibson and Major John Grodinzski will also be speaking on War of 1812 topics.
Fort Henry's evening Military Tattoo starts at 7.30pm, and a small naval re-enactment will take place from 7pm, prior to the tattoo.
On 1 July, there will be a series of events unfolding between Bath and Kingston along the shores of Lake Ontario as the Flight of the Royal George is re-enacted for all to see. This living history event will feature three tall ships and seven gunboats in a carefully orchestrated display of military history.
