Black Creek Pioneer Village offers it all – activities, food, fun and learning that will engage and entertain the whole family. This recreated 1860’s village is one of those rare and special places that provides an authentic historical experience. It is also now easily accessible by TTC near the new Pioneer Village Station on the University Line Extension.

During the main season (late Spring to early Autumn), visitors can visit the restored historic buildings and learn about artifacts from costumed educators. A highlight for kids is playing with the farmyard animals like goats, bunnies, ducks and chickens. You can also enjoy hands-on activities, beautiful gardens and gifted period musicians.

This year, things look a little different. In July, Guided Family Experiences began the 2021 season, allowing small private groups to experience Black Creek Pioneer Village with a dedicated costumed educator. These themed programs tour around the Village while participating in hands-free interactive experiences.

Now on Sunday, August 15, 2021, the Guided Family Experiences continue but the Village also opens for general admission with regular hours (Wednesday to Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm). Guests are asked to follow a one-direction route around the Village to visit the heritage buildings to allow for appropriate physical distance. Wander through the gardens, meet the animals, and encounter costumed educators at outdoor Discovery Stations located throughout.

Covid-related visitor protocols are in place, including mask-wearing. Details are available here.
