Join in the celebration as our 1860s Village celebrates Queen Victoria’s birthday. Sing “God Save the Queen”, hear historical patriotic speeches, see grand military manoeuvres’, lace up for the 1860s athletic games, watch the Village’s “Queen” in action (a hand-pumped fire engine), and enjoy a piece of birthday cake.
This event is included in your Upper Canada Village daily programming admission.
