Dominion Day “Old Time” Village Fair

A festive day celebrating the coastal villages in the Lake Charlotte area. Come see remote controlled model boats in action on the Dufferin Pond. Enjoy a free freshly made donut from our vintage Belshaw Donut Robot, then explore the Village with some traditional 1940s games and races with the kids, or try panning for gold. Our special Canada 150 Meal is on in the Cookhouse, so check out the menu below for details!

Please Note: Memory Lane Heritage Village has free-roaming farm animals on site and does not allow pets within the Village grounds.
