Things to do
Canada’s War of 1812 comes to life inside Fort George, site of a key battle more than 200 years ago. Wander through eight restored buildings, hear military music performed by the 41st Fife and Drum Corps, watch live musket demonstrations and enjoy beautiful views of the mighty Niagara River. Trained interpreters in historical dress share stories of the lives of British soldiers and their families, as well as the fateful day the fort fell to American forces.
Watch redcoat-clad soldiers load and fire muskets at Fort George National Historic Site, or take part in Hands on History, dressing in uniform and firing the Brown Bess musket yourself.
Hear the military music of Fort George National Historic Site’s Fife and Drum Corps as well as the social tunes popular during the War of 1812 performed on historic instruments by the unique Band of Music.
Parks Canada has two sets of red Adirondack chairs in quiet and scenic locations throughout Fort George National Historic Site. It’s time to connect! With nature - with history - with friends and family.
