We visited the Pioneer Village for a pancake brunch and a visit with Santa. The kids were also given gingerbread me to decorate and they had fresh coffee, tea and juice! There were lots of activities around the village for kids to do, and the grounds were kept nice and clean. I would say this is more an event targeted... More

Pancake and sausage breakfast, gingerbread cookie decoration, St. Nicholas in his historic outfit... great fun for kids and adults alike! This is the season to reflect on what matters and revisit what it was like when we didn't have the Internet at our fingers. The village reps made the day great, historic costumes and Christmas decor made the buildings a... More

My wife and I were guests at a wedding reception that took place on the grounds of the Pioneer Village. The father of the bride had rented a ferris wheel, which was fully lit as the dusk set. The reception was situated inside the barn. It was rustic chic. We still say that was one of the best receptions we've... More

We went out to this park because they were doing a weekend event for the 1812 War. This added to the charm of the park with lots of educational talks in the various buildings and then of course the war. It was interesting just how smoky those old guns are so gives you a better respect for those old movies.... More

Fanshawe Pioneer Village is comprised of over 30 historic buildings that have been moved to this site and preserved. The village is pretty easy to do in a couple of hours and made a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. There is a cafe on the grounds that serves freshly made salads and sandwiches.
