The Landing is an annual commemoration of the historic arrival of the Mohawks here on May 22, 1784, although archival cartographic maps show Iroquois settlement on the north shore of Lake Ontario more than 150 years prior. Celebrated since 1929, "Mohawk Landing" is held on the Sunday closest to May 22. Activities include a reenactment of the landing of the canoes, a special church service, and traditional teachings at the local community centre. Traditional dress and Iroquoian food also enhance this unique historical celebration.
