With 2017 marking Canada’s 150th anniversary since confederation, annual events all over the country are stepping up their game to make this year one to remember.
Some exciting news was recently announced for Pumpkinferno’s sesquicentennial season.
Behind-the-scenes work going on at the Village - our lead carpenter seen here, with the help of the Village cabinetmaker, have done a beautiful job restoring the balustrade and panels that decorate the steeple of Christ Church at Upper Canada Village!
Touring Upper Canada Village is a unique experience, transporting you back in time to the 1860s. Experience traditional farming techniques, demonstrated through the growing of heirloom vegetables and raising of heritage livestock breeds. Ornamental gardens throughout the village feature flora fashionable in the Victorian era. Weavers, spinners and dressmakers demonstrate traditional handiwork. See historical trades being demonstrated and water-powered mills at work.
This is your opportunity to take delight in the simple daily pleasures of sipping on an ice cold ginger beer, enjoy freshly made bread, share a horse and carriage ride and learn new skills from the Village's artisans.
