Memorial Day Weekend at Fort Ticonderoga
Celebrate Fort Ticonderoga Memorial Day Weekend on May 25-27, 2019 at Fort Ticonderoga in Ticonderoga, New York. Join us as we remember the service of the armed forces of the United States on the very ground where so many American soldiers fought and sacrificed. Experience all aspects of the life of the Continental Army soldier in 1777 and learn about what they believed would come from their sacrifice in the name of liberty.
Discover the story of the American Army in 1776, 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. On Monday, 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.
