Battle of Stoney Creek re-enactment is happening this weekend

The annual tradition of the Battle of Stoney Creek re-enactment – cancelled for the past three years due to the pandemic – is making its return this weekend. 

Taking place at Battlefield House Museum & Park at 77 King Street West, the Battle of Stoney Creek recreates a pivotal moment in Canadian history with live battle re-enactments performed at select times each day as well as vendors, food, games, and more. 

Free to attend for all ages, this year’s Battle of Stoney Creek re-enactment takes place on Saturday, June 3 from 10 am to 10 pm; and Sunday, June 4 from 10 am to 4:30 pm. 

The battle re-enactments themselves will be at 3:30 pm and 8:30 pm on the Saturday, and at 2 pm on the Sunday. 

For the first time ever, the re-enactment features Indigenous programming including a narrated ‘Great Peace Game’ of Haudenosaunee Lacrosse played on the battlefield prior to each re-enactment, and a sharing of the Gada:tro (or, Standing Quiver Dance) and the Smoke Dance after the game.
