Fort York Frost Fair


Jan 17, 2020 to Jan 18, 2020


For a memorable outing, discover the winter beauty of Fort York’s 1812-era buildings blanketed in snow. In the evening, view the Fort in a “new” light during a special lantern tour, which provides a glimpse of garrison life after dark. Tour a selection of buildings with our interpretive staff and sample historic treats from the 1826 kitchen hearth. Don’t forget to bring your skates to glide along The Bentway Skate Trail, where you will be joined by a Redcoat or two! Warm-up in the Visitor Centre and grab a treat by local food vendors after your skate.

Fort York is one of 10 Toronto History Museums which explore where Toronto's many pasts, presents and futures meet. The museum, a 43-acre national historic site located in the heart of downtown Toronto, is a registered archaeological site, and home to Canada’s largest collection of original War of 1812 buildings.
