Hot Attraction: Step Back in Time at Upper Canada Village

Feel like you've stepped back in time at Upper Canada Village.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Upper Canada Village. Costumed interpreters look like they’ve just arrived from the 19th century and there are more than 25 historical buildings to see. You can watch the local blacksmith make horseshoes and tools, explore the local tavern, and visit the Gazette Printing Office, a functioning example of a printing press from the 1860s. Be sure to check out special weekend events such as a heritage carnival (Aug. 6 and 7), an antique car show (Aug. 14), and a food lovers’ weekend with period meals (Aug. 13 and 14).
