Guided Tours and Historical Re-enactments with the Confederation Players

Experience the living history of the story of Confederation.
History comes alive when you stroll down Charlottetown’s historic district with the Confederation Players- a troupe of costumed, young Canadians, trained as the Fathers and Ladies of Confederation. Join the Players for a walking tour experience like no other, stepping into the middle of history as it is unfolding . Through their portrayal of key figures such as John A. Macdonald, George Coles, and George-Étienne Cartier, the Confederation Players provide a glimpse into the cultural and historical context of the Charlottetown Conference.

Harmony, Conversation and Friendly Competition  |  JUNE 29–AUGUST 18  |  FREE

Confederation Players, in character, can be found throughout the grounds of Confederation Centre of the Arts, Victoria Row, Queen’s Square and surrounding areas. Have a burning question about Confederation? Ask away! Feel free to engage in conversation with our Players as they meander about historic downtown Charlottetown.

Feel free to eavesdrop on a lively debate on various subjects, current in the 1860s as our Players banter over chess or engage in a battle of wills and words in a lively game of croquet or horseshoes on the lawn. Or perhaps listen in as the Players join the Confederation Brass in song around mid-day on the Upper Plaza at the corner of Queen and Grafton Streets.
