Canada’s Oldest Annual Picnic

Saturday, April 16, 2022 to Saturday, September 3, 2022

The summer exhibit will highlight the 125th anniversary of the Baker Family Re-union and Picnic illustrating key periods in the history of the family and of their part of Central Elgin. A complementary exhibit on the 19th century picnic tradition will illustrate the many union, club, fraternal, school, and church picnics that were often held at the lake ports. These events with their ancillary trains, boats, and bands constituted major social occasions.

Our offices will be closed on Monday, November 13th. Regular business hours will resume on Tuesday, November 14th.
