Canada Day Community Celebration

Jul 1st

Start Time: 11:00am - 4:00pm

Come out and join us for our 10th Annual Canada Day Community Celebration!

Families and history buffs alike will enjoy this imaginative recreation of the 1837 Upper Canada Rebellion, in which Newmarket played a vital role. Military re-enactors and historical interpreters will take over the Sharon Temple Museum as it transforms into a 19th century encampment where visitors can talk with historians and experience hands-on history.

At 11 am, see the new recruits gathered at the front of the Temple for the opening ceremonies. By 12:30, they will be ready to muster and start to learn drill. Finally, at 2 pm a skirmish will break out….stand back and watch as the Rebels and the Crown soldiers face off against each other.
