The event opens with Education Day programming on Friday May 25th. Visitors experience the life of an early 1800s settler in Upper Canada along the Erie shoreline.
See the skills needed to be an early settler; hear the music; learn the dances; and visit historic merchants. There will be something for the entire family to experience - food, displays, performers and historic reenactments, all steps away from the picturesque John E. Pearce Provincial Park.
