Drama, Pageantry and Excitement. At Battlefield House Museum and Park, you’ll re-live firsthand the thrill and pageantry of the battle that was a turning point of the War of 1812 with the re-enactment of the Battle of Stoney Creek — one of the most important events in Canada’s history.

Visit the encampment and mingle with early 19th century settlers and soldiers as they go about their daily life. Shop among one-of-a-kind merchants. Witness historical demonstrations of cooking, dancing, and blacksmithing. Bring the whole family for games, food, demonstrations, musical entertainment, fireworks and the opportunity to discover Canadian heritage.
