Queen Victoria’s Birthday
May 19, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Relive the festive 19th century celebrations surrounding a royal holiday.
A merry mood permeates the Fort on this occasion. At noon, bagpipes announce the start of the traditional tributes to the queen. The pipes are followed by a musket volley, toasts to the queen, and a cannon salute.
Many of the Fort’s ladies and gentlemen will be dressed in their finest, 1850s fashion. Throughout the day, guests can visit with our historical interpreters, join in a game of croquet, and enjoy performances.
