Fort Ticonderoga and the King’s Garden celebrate the sights, sounds, and tastes of fall. Bring the whole family for a full day of autumn fun. The King’s Garden, a beautiful Colonial Revival garden built in memory of the soldiers' gardens of old, will be alive with fall fun and food. Set in the garden’s floral scenery will be the lively and colorful harvest market, plus games and activities for all. Get ready for your fall culinary and decorating desires with an array of fruits, vegetables, pumpkins, gourds, jams & jellies, and other fall favorites. Set amongst the heirloom apple orchard of the King’s Garden, enjoy farm stands from many local Adirondack and Vermont farms. Take a family trip through the heroic corn maze, with the beautiful Adirondack foliage, and Ticonderoga’s epic history as a back drop.
In this Festival, we look too at the equine part of Fort Ticonderoga’s history. Experience the power and thunder of hooves through demonstrations of equestrian sports and working horses alike. See a 19thcentury horse-powered hay press in action. From farm horses to cavalry mounts, get a chance to meet some of these beautiful four-legged animals as you tour around the Fort’s garrison grounds and gardens.
