Back for the 2022 season!
Horse lovers will have reason to celebrate at Upper Canada Village’s Horse Lovers’ weekend. This festival showcases riding, driving, and working horses with the help of our Village Interpreters and a variety of community partners.
New this year, we are thrilled to announce that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Musical Ride, one of Canada’s most recognized icons, will be making a special appearance on Sunday, September 4th, performing intricate formations and drills set to music in the Village fairgrounds!
