Battle of York Weekend

Sunday, April 26 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Battle of York at Fort York Toronto
Fort York comes alive to mark the 207th anniversary of the Battle of York that came to its violent climax on April 27, 1813, during the War of 1812. Check out the musket firing demonstrations, the Georgian-era cooking in the Officers’ Mess kitchen, and take a tour of the largest collection of War of 1812 buildings in Canada. Don’t miss the original Regimental Colours of the 3rd Regiment of York Militia, now on display. Fort York is one of 10 Toronto History Museums which explore where Toronto’s many pasts, presents and futures meet. The museum, a 43-acre national historic site located in the heart of downtown Toronto, is a registered archaeological site, and home to Canada’s largest collection of original War of 1812 buildings.
