Come One, Come All . . . to A Walk Through Time
at Adolphustown, ON where Loyalists landed in June 1784
Event time-period – late 1700's to early 1800's - Loyalist era to 1820
When - June 14 to 16, 2019 (coming earlier or staying later is an option)
Where – in the quiet treed or open areas of the Adolphustown Park.
The park is just south off the Loyalist Parkway/Hwy #33, 4 km. east of the Glenora Ferry, roughly 50 km. west of Kingston, and just over 30 km. from Napanee, the closest Hwy #401 interchange.
What – This is essentially a civilian camp though the military is welcome We aim to show various of the many trades and occupations of the era, along with games and the general work of camp life. Saturday will see us offering an afternoon tea complete with goodies baked over the fire onsite. Any who wish to participate in the tea will be welcomed with great glee. We do not usually see a great number of visitors and perhaps this may help entice the public to attend. Musical instruments are welcomed. Anyone who wishes to participate in the flag-raising on Sunday is encouraged, and if you wish to be part of the celebratory volley bring your guns! Archery and hawk throwing would be activities we could pursue if anyone would care to bring a target block.
