You can finally take a look behind the scenes at Old Fort Erie. 

Together with the Niagara Parks Commission, the Friends of Fort George are offering a bus trip to the fort, including a stop at the Battle of Chippawa site, a stop for lunch and of course a VIP tour of the fort itself. 

The bus departs Fort George at 10 a.m. on July 19 and returns at 4 p.m. 

Historian and former Fort George superintendent Ron Dale will lead the presentation at the Chippawa Battlefield.

“The Battle of Chippawa was a very important battle for Indigenous warriors, so he will be highlighting that,” executive director Amanda Gamble told The Lake Report. 

Gamble explained that before COVID-19 hit, they ran a popular members-only excursion to Fort Niagara and had one planned to Old Fort Erie since then.  

“For us, it’s a way to raise awareness about other historic sites in the Niagara region,” she said.

Tickets are available at $100 each for members and $110 for nonmembers. Reserve a limited spot by calling the Friends of Fort George at 905-468-6621 or emailing admin@friendsoffortgeorge.ca.
