Join Fanshawe Pioneer Village and reenactors for Fanshawe 1812. Experience the sights, sails, muskets, and militia as you explore period encampments and witness hard-fought battles between British and American forces on land and Fanshawe lake!

Witness a naval battle and beach landing each day, and witness a battle in the Village each afternoon!

Will the British forces by routed by the Americans, or will they be able to maintain the Village of Fanshawe for crown?
