Fort Henry National Historic Site is perched on a promontory overlooking Lake Ontario, Royal Military College of Canada and the historic downtown of Kingston, Ontario. The nineteenth century British fortification was named part of a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2008. The setting is an incredible venue for hosting this year's banquet which will be catered by Jessup Food & Heritage, Ltd.
Guests will be served by soldier servants in uniforms from the nineteenth century in the historic setting of Fort Henry which dates from 1832 and will be treated like guests of the Officer's Mess during the reign of Queens Victoria. True to the situation at the time -- don't say please or thank you to the servants!
This venue features a outdoor tent located in the parade square of the fort. The evening will end with a surprise that is sure to delight us all!
