Accessible History Weekend
As a living history site, Upper Canada Village offers a rich multisensory environment. The smell of bread baking at the Bakery, the sound of the hammer ringing on the anvil, the feel of tangled wool fleece at the Woollen Mill are just a sampling of experiences that make the Village accessible to and fun for everyone. Let our skilled interpretive staff enrich your visit and cater to your needs. In addition, on July 8 & 9, Upper Canada Village offers the following special tours and services:
