Launch Day

Date: 

Saturday, September 22, 2018 - 10:30am to 4:30pm

The Maitland Launch Festival is a commemorative celebration of the launch of the great ship, William D. Lawrence, the largest square-rigged wooden vessel ever built in Canada!

The original launch took place on October 27, 1874 and was attended by over 4000 people drawn from far and wide, many of whom came to witness the ship capsize and sink, believing the ship to be too large to float. But float she did, and the William D. Lawrence became Mr. Lawrence's most successful ship ever built.

Historic Places Day

Date: 

Saturday, July 7, 2018 - 10:00am to 5:00pm

Historic places tell us the stories that brought Canada to life, teach us about our heritage in a way history class can’t, and can give us a sense of collective identity.

On July 7, thousands of Canadians will join the national celebration during the second annual Canada Historic Places Day by visiting historic places around the country and discovering cultural, Indigenous, and social history.
