War of 1812 Bi-Centennial

Taking place between June 2012 and February 2015, the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 will be celebrated and commemorated by the people of Niagara Falls in a variety of ways.

This significant event played a pivotal role in the shaping of our nation, and the impact on the residents of Niagara was tremendous. For three years, the residents of Niagara Falls lived on the front lines of this global conflict, with two major battles (Chippawa and Lundy's Lane) taking place within the boundaries of the present City of Niagara Falls.

All events must be approved by the Niagara Falls War of 1812 Task Force. Contact them at niagara1812@niagarafalls.ca or call the Niagara Falls Museums at 905-358-5082. You can also complete the Events Registration Application on-line.
