Watch out! Enemy forces are planning to attack Wasaga Beach! Our peaceful shores have not seen this many cannons, muskets, and bayonettes since the HMS Nancy sank in the Nottowasaga River in 1814. Join us on the battlefields, or at the encampment on Nancy Island Historic Site, as re-enactors attack and avenge the demise of the HMS Nancy. Full of events for the entire family to enjoy, you don’t want to miss out on this unforgettable experience. For more information visit: www.wasagaundersiege1812.com
