Fort George in the Great War Re-enactor Registration

Please be advised that this registration for re-enactors only. If you are interested in attending this event as a spectator please visit our Special events page or call us at 905-468-6614 for more information. Thank You.

Thank you very much for your interest in participating in Fort George in the Great War: WWI weekend. We are looking forward to this 2nd (and hopefully annual) First World War event held on the grounds that included Camp Niagara, an active training ground for Canadian, American and Polish troops during the First World War. We are currently working with re-enactors to develop an exciting program for the weekend.

We ask that individual re-enactors fill out the registration below as it helps us determine numbers for programing and logistics (food, washrooms etc..) for the weekend. If you have family members that are non-combatants attending as well they can be included on a single registration. Make sure to include your email so we can send you any updates.

Thank you very much and we look forward to seeing you in June!
