Step into 1867

Experience the life of a villager in the 1860s by dressing in period costume and stepping into the shoes of a blacksmith or woodturner apprentice, member of the gentry class, or farmer to see first-hand the important role they played in Sherbrooke Village. 

Get immersed in your villager role by following their social etiquettes, trying the hands-on activities they took part in, and learning first-hand what their life was like. The activities you participate in throughout the day will help you both create a memento that you take home with you, and leave your mark on the village. 

You’re always the right age to play dress-up at Sherbrooke Village! Who will you become? Who will you be next time? For added fun, if you’re travelling with friends or family, try mixing up class roles to see how different your lives would have been.
