Regular Heritage Village admission rates apply, unless you are purchasing a Suppertime Meal Ticket (see details below). All buildings will be open for a self-guided evening tour. It will be just like visiting during the day, but with the bonus of “magic hour” lighting. The Village is so beautiful before sunset; visitors are highly encouraged to take photos! We will also be presenting the Eastern Shore Heritage Spotlight Series of illustrated talks by local history experts and enthusiasts for folks who want a bit of extra history with their evening stroll down Memory Lane! (see details below)
Every Thursday, at 7 PM in the Clam Factory, local history experts and enthusiasts will present a ½ hour illustrated “talk” on a local history topic followed by a brief Q&A. Bar service will be available for those who wish to enjoy a spirited beverage along with their history lesson.
There will be no additional charge to attend these talks beyond regular Heritage Village admission, however seating is limited so reservations are required. Society members get free Heritage Village admission.
Take a look at the Schedule below for a list of the upcoming Spotlights.
The Cookhouse will be featuring a different Thursday evening meal each week. Rest assured, all of your favourite Memory Lane comfort meals will be in the rotation! Outdoor seating is available by the Dufferin Pond. Cooks Dave & Holly are working hard on a menu plan so take a peek at the schedule below!*
Supper reservations are required (purchase online or call us to reserve).
The purchase of a meal is not necessary for a Thursday evening visit or to attend the Spotlight Series talks.
