Memorial Day Weekend
May 25, 2019 – May 27, 2019
Join Fort Ticonderoga to remember the service of the armed forces of the United States on the very grounds where so many American soldiers paid the ultimate price for freedom. Discover the story of the American Army in 1777, rebuilding itself and digging in at Ticonderoga to defend liberty during living history programs throughout the weekend.
On Saturday and Sunday, enjoy narrated boat tours aboard the Carillon and sail the same shores of Lake Champlain that American sailors did in 1777. Join Fort Ticonderoga on Monday to remember the sacrifices of American Soldiers during a solemn ceremony at 11:00 AM.
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 soldiers’ life programs; weapons demonstrations; the Mount Defiance experience; and the Battlefield hiking trail.
