Join us as we take a journey back to Simcoe County in 1812 at the Festival at Fort Willow!

Historical re-enactors will bring to life the daily activities of British soldiers, camp followers and Indigenous people living in Simcoe County in the early 19th century. Visitors can muster-up and march in the King’s army, learn about traditional blacksmithing, carpentry and candle making, and listen to the cannons roar. The Simcoe County Museum, Barrie Art Club, wandering minstrels and cavalry will add to the festivities.

Light BBQ (corn, sausage, hotdog) and Artisan crafts will be available for sale (cash only).
