When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.

Fort Ticonderoga’s 2020 Campaign Season and Daily Visitation have been postponed. NY Gov. Cuomo has announced “NY Forward,” a staged reopen plan in response to COVID-19. Although the situation may change, Fort Ticonderoga anticipates that our gates will once again open to visitors when the North Country enters Phase 4 of the “NY Forward” plan in early July. 

Celebrate Fort Ticonderoga Memorial Day Weekend on May 23-25, 2020 at Fort Ticonderoga in Ticonderoga, New York. Join us as we remember the service of the armed forces of the United Stated on the very grounds where so many American soldiers fought and sacrificed. Experience all aspects of the life of the Continental Army soldier in 1777, from their weapons to their rations, and learn about what they believed would come from their sacrifice in the name of liberty.

All weekend long, watch as these new soldiers in the Continental Army ply their civilian trades and help build this military outpost. Parade into Fort Ticonderoga behind the Fifes and Drums during a special program on Memorial Day and step back in time to meet the soldiers of the American Revolution.

A full line-up of activities and programs will be offered throughout the weekend, including guided expert tours of scenic grounds and key buildings. Demonstrations of historic trades, weaponry, and daily life activities.

Special events like boat cruises and sightseeing tours. For additional fees, enjoy breathtaking views and epic stories atop Mount Defiance, or take a narrated boat tour aboard the Carillon while sailing the shores of Lake Champlain.
