We can all feel it in the air, summer has faded into autumn with routines now falling back into place. That does not mean we have to stop enjoying family time together, especially if you have a trip to Kings Landing, New Brunswick planned. Or better yet, why not plan one with so much to explore in this 19th-century village.
Come to Explore
You will be hard pressed to fit everything in just in one day. Their museum alone has over 70, 000 artifacts, making it one of Atlantic Canada’s largest collections. Your imagination will truly be transfixed when stepping back in time to explore life as it once was.
From horseback riding to candle making, hands-on experience is encouraged while visiting Kings Landing. Bring the kids and the grandparents and watch how all generations can truly enjoy and relish in all that this place has to offer.
Baskets and Wares
I highly recommend checking out their upcoming auction on October 8th. Selling baskets of food harvested from Kings Landing is not to be missed. Handmade items such as blacksmith wares and leather bags will also be up for grabs. With so many items for sale, they will be there from 2 pm until all items are sold.
Ever dreamt about being a lumberjack? Then Crosscut Saw is for you. Find your way over to their sawmill for all the details. Or, for those with pep in your step, then head on over to the Country Dance for a unique look at an English-style folk dance. There really is something for everyone to enjoy.
What about the food? Well, I am glad you asked. The village ladies will be sharing recipes all weekend long during Apple Fest! While it is a scheduled event, it will be ongoing throughout the fest. You can also visit the pub for snacks and beverages.
Their Harvest Home Long-Table Feast and Victorian Thanksgiving Dinner is already sold out. But save the date, once Thanksgiving is over be sure to get your tickets for Christmas at King’s Head Inn. These dinners are a fan favourite for a reason with delicious fresh local ingredients at the root of its dishes.
Gather your favourite people and plan for a fun filled adventure that will have you all feeling like you have traveled a million miles away. This historical village will both inspire and inform its visitors while also taking them on a magical adventure. There is still a long list of crafts, workshops, and lectures to take in while visiting Kings Landing. Be sure to follow the link to their online calendar for all the details.
