The Abandoned village was brilliant. Myself and the kids loved it! It was terrifying and so well done. The location of the pioneer village was the perfect spot. What an amazing Halloween adventure. Thank you to all involved. Well done!
Enjoyed their Haunted Village event. They went all out with the 6 haunted spots on the site. It must have been like 30 to 40 minutes to get through them all. What an incredible treat. I am definitely going back next year.
We had our wedding at Fanshawe Pioneer Village. They were great to work with. They gave us options to move the reception outside once the pandemic took a turn. The coordinator was wonderful the day of. She coordinated with our vendors and helped us tear down at the end of the night. The assistant events coordinator was amazing too! He shuttled anyone around on the golf cart and even took the kids for a ride around the Village to help with their boredom. The location was beautiful and perfect for pictures.
As out of the way it can be for a casual visit, this place is a gorgeous place to historical education a preservation of vintage buildings arranged like a 19th Century Canadian village.
Loved visiting this place last Saturday. My husband and I learned so much about how life was for these pioneers from 1820-1920. I loved the physical environment - building, furniture, and household items. We went on a day that was cloudy all morning. It ended up being perfect: not too hot out, and not too busy! We spent about 3 hours there. There are public washrooms, in the cafe building (cafe itself is closed at the moment). What a treat this place was! I was inspired to ask many questions... and the well-trained staff members were able to answer each of them. Even the ones that I didn't think they'd know, about the life expectancy rate back then, how life differed between generations,... Truly time well spent. I look forward to going back, with others. $10/adult, $25 for an annual pass - adult.
