Annual Siege of Old Fort Erie Reenactment

August 13 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Take a journey through time at Old Fort Erie and experience what it was like during the War of 1812 as soldiers clashed and cannons were fired with the Annual Siege of Fort Erie Reenactment. Explore the fort as hundreds of reenactors demonstrate why the site is known as Canada’s bloodiest battlefield. Then, watch the full battle reenactment on Saturday and Sunday!

All camp and battle reenactments at Old Fort Erie are free to the public and begin at 10 a.m. at the Welcome Centre. Admission to Old Fort Erie and the Saturday Night Lantern Tour is separate. Free parking is available in front of the Old Fort Erie Welcome Centre.

Registration is not required to enjoy this free event. Re-enactment participants must register here.
