The Fort York Drums



In Partnership with Fort York National Historic Site


The Drums, founded in 2000, recreate the fifers and drummers of the Canadian Regiment of Fencible Infantry, a regiment raised specifically for the defense of Canada.  Mainly comprised of volunteers between the ages of 11–16, they perform daily at the fort during the summer, and travel throughout the year promoting the fort and its activities.
