June 29, 2021 | St. Lawrence Parks Commission

MORRISBURG, ONTARIO — St. Lawrence Parks Commission (SLPC) is pleased to announce that Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg, Ontario will open for its regular season on Thursday, July 1, 2021 with modifications which comply with public health measures, advice and restrictions. The regular season runs until September 5, 2021.

Guests were able to get a sneak peek at the Village this year through limited edition walking tours in June, but now the Village will open more widely, allowing guests to explore the outdoor setting of the Village at their own pace.

Guests will be greeted by costumed staff and can experience the workings of a 19th century Ontario village, watching artisans and craftspeople performing trades and occupations of the time, seeing the moving machinery of operating water and steam-powered mills and visiting the working farms. Guests will be able to glance inside a variety of the historic buildings which will fully reopen in Step 3 of the Roadmap to Reopen Ontario plan. Rides (train, carry-alls and tow scow) will not be operational at this time.

Welcoming guests back safely remains a top priority. Staff will be relying on the cooperation of all to adhere to physical distancing and onsite guidelines.
