Recurring Event Event Series: Memorial Day Weekend Commemoration

Memorial Day Weekend Commemoration

Military interpreters pulling a cannon through the Fort Ticonderoga archway

Join Fort Ticonderoga to pay tribute to the men and women who lost their lives in service to their country during the American Revolution.

During this weekend-long commemoration, discover the story of the American Army in 1777 and how it rebuilt itself at Ticonderoga to defend liberty during living history programs and demonstrations.

Join a hive of activity as citizens-turned-soldiers build extensive lines of defenses across the Ticonderoga peninsula and beyond to try to secure this vital stronghold from the British. Throughout the weekend, witness the labor of liberty as soldiers from the Continental Army bring to life this defining story through military drills, historic trades, and fatigue duties such as carpentry.

Enjoy narrated scenic boat tours aboard the Carillon and sail the same shores of Lake Champlain that American soldiers and sailors did in 1777.

A full line-up of activities and programs offered throughout the weekend include daily tours in the fort, King’s Garden, and museum exhibition spaces; historic trades programs; ongoing living history programs; thrilling weapons demonstrations; the Mount Defiance experience; and the Carillon Battlefield hiking trail.

A 10% general admissions discount will be given to active duty military members with proof of service for this special weekend-long event.

Additionally, Fort Ticonderoga will hold a solemn virtual ceremony on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30th at 11 a.m. to remember fallen American soldiers. The ceremony can be accessed on the Fort Ticonderoga Facebook page.
