Summer at Fort York (2019)

July and August, every day, 10 am to 5 pm

The Fort York Summer Guard have taken up their posts. Visitors will enjoy hourly demonstrations of military music, drill, musketry and artillery, all performed by students in uniforms of the Canadian Regiment of Fencible Infantry. These were the soldiers who garrisoned the fort at the end of the War of 1812. Highlights throughout the day include cannon firing, the concerts of the fifes and drums – and seeing what’s cooking in the regiment’s original, stone-hearth kitchen. Program varies daily, so please call for details.

Regular admission (tax included): Adults $14, Seniors $10, Youth $8 (13-18), Children $6 (6-12), Toddlers (5 and under) free.
