Fort Langley National Historic Site
Free Admission during our Canada Celebrations!
Rising from the mist of the Fraser River, the palisades of Fort Langley stand tall. Inside the walls, rough-hewn timber buildings recreate the rugged 1800’s. See where Hudson’s Bay Company fur traders mingled with California gold prospectors and hear First Nations interpreters tell century old tales. Feel the blast of the musket fire, pan for gold dust and dress up to play a historic traders boss.
Celebrate Canada’s 153th Birthday at the site where British Columbia was born.
Enjoy multicultural music and dances to witness some of the cultures that helped form the great country Canada is now. Sure to be an exciting day for everyone with face painting, airbrush tattoos, henna, flag raising, cake, and pictures with Parka!
Tips for your day: please note, our café is under construction, and you are welcome to bring a picnic or purchase snacks at our gift shop. Also, remember your insect repellent at this time of the year.
