Simcoe Day (2018)
Monday, August 6, 10 am to 5 pm
Fort York comes to life in honour of the first Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of Upper Canada (1793-96) and founder of Fort York and the Town of York – John Graves Simcoe. Walk the historic grounds and thrill to demonstrations of musketry and artillery. There will be music by the Fort York Guard and as well as the Guards from Fort George at Niagara-on-the-Lake and Old Fort Erie. Visit the working kitchen in the 1815 Officers' Brick Barracks, take tours of the fort's buildings and grounds and discover the dynamic lives of the fort's men, women and children at the beginning of the 1800s.
