Historic Nancy Island, water, food, entertainment, drinks, souvenir and 4
battles on 3 different battlefields including river battles. Battles will
be fought all over the town of Wasaga Beach with parading, pillaging,
cannons, muskets, longboats and voyageur canoes. We will be using all our
talents and proven Wasaga under Siege 1812 hospitality to make sure all
re-enactors & participants feel welcomed and satisfied that it was worth the
Wasaga Beach, Ontario as many of you already know host the longest
fresh water beach in the world and attracts thousands of tourist each day to
its beaches and attractions. Re-enactors and their families will have the
opportunity to enjoy the historical components of the event as well as the
beach and modern attractions such as shopping, restaurants, waterslides,
midway, paintball and other attractions to numerous to mention.
Merchants, blanket traders and artisans are welcomed free of

All re-enactors who portray any aspect of the War of 1812 are
welcomed to participate. They can include - British and American Regulars
or Militia, Navy Personnel, Cannon Crews, Natives, Voyageurs, Rendezvous,
and Men, Women & Children civilians. Re-enactors who wish to bring cannons,
bateaus, canoes and cavalry can negotiate with me for travel, haulage or
Sunday morning will also feature the Redcoat Iron-man and
Iron-women contest that has proven to be a popular event not only to
participate in, but to watch as well, with prizes going out to the winners.
If you are registering on-line please register individually or

actual people attending and camping on the island.
