Battle of York Weekend at Fort York National Historic Site, 250 Fort York Blvd., Toronto
Honour the 206th anniversary of the Battle of York fought on April 27, 1813. The Fort comes alive with musket firing demonstrations, Georgian cooking in the Officers' Quarters kitchen, site tours and period animation. Kids can try "falling-in" for 1812-era soldiering drill! Regular admission. Explore the special collections Vault at the Fort York Visitor Centre, and discover the original Regimental Colours of the 3rd Regiment of York Militia who fought gallantly against American invaders at the Battle of York. After years of laborious conservation work, the colours return to Fort York as a testament to what historians have called Toronto's most traumatic day–the attack and occupation of the Town of York. Produced by the young women of York during the War of 1812, they were secreted away to keep them from being seized as a war trophy by American troops. The flags were donated to the City of Toronto in 2009 and are on public display for the first time in many years. April 27 & 28

In the fall of 2014, a National Geographic team set out on what they knew would be a harrowing first ascent to the summit of Myanmar’s Hkakabo Razi to measure it and determine if it is indeed Southeast Asia’s highest point. What they didn’t realize was that the greatest obstacle wouldn’t be dwindling rations, gruelling jungle hikes, or the life-threatening hypothermia. It was the force of conflicting personalities that threatened to unravel the entire endeavour. Leader Hilaree O’Neill recounts the tough decisions she had to make to keep the team together, accompanied by photographer Cory Richards’s dramatic stills and clips from Renan Ozturk’s award-winning documentary film, Down to Nothing.

April 28 to 30 Sun Apr 28 2:00PM Mon Apr 29 8:00PM Tue Apr 30 8:00PM Series subscriptions from $79 for 4 events, on sale now. In the fall of 2014, a National Geographic team set out on what they knew would be a harrowing first ascent to the summit of Myanmar’s Hkakabo Razi to measure it and determine if it is indeed Southeast Asia’s highest point. What they didn’t realize was that the greatest obstacle wouldn’t be dwindling rations, gruelling jungle hikes, or the life-threatening hypothermia. It was the force of conflicting personalities that threatened to unravel the entire endeavour. Leader Hilaree O’Neill recounts the tough decisions she had to make to keep the team together, accompanied by photographer Cory Richards’s dramatic stills and clips from Renan Ozturk’s award-winning documentary film, Down to Nothing.
