 Our region was pivotal in defending Canada during the War of 1812. From July 1812 to September 1814, the area between Cornwall and Kingston led a strategic role in military action. The St. Lawrence River was Upper Canada’s lifeline with Great Britain: a crucial supply line throughout the War of 1812 and a key passageway to Montreal. The Battle of Crysler's Farm was fought along the St. Lawrence - an incursion that arguably saved Canada.


With an aim to vividly recall life in early Upper Canada, the St. Lawrence region will commemorate its strategic importance during the war. Offering major naval and battle re-enactments, a network of Regency dancing, and workshops covering all aspects of life in 1812, we will take you back in time to celebrate our roots.
