Battle Re-enactment 2018

In co-ordination with the St. Lawrence Parks Commission/Upper Canada Village we return to the beautiful banks of the St. Lawrence on the 14th to the 15th of July 2018.

We are as a change of pace currently considering again recreating a different War of 1812-14 battle for Saturday, but the Battle of Crysler’s Farm will definitely be the main event on Sunday!

Whether you are a member of the public or a re-enactor please mark this on your calendar for next summer.

For the Re-enactor community please follow us for further organizational updates. Better yet drop us a line if you have any questions or comments. The tent flap is always open…

New Gallery: 2016 Re-enactment

We’ve added a new gallery containing photos from the 2016 event’s Saturday battle – a representation of the Battle of Hoople’s Creek. Thanks to all those who braved the weather to visit, and the re-enactors who made it possible.
