The 100th Regiment was present for the annual Colonel By Day held at the Ottawa Locks.
Colonel By Day is a free, one-day, family-friendly heritage celebration which commemorates Lt-Colonel John By and the builders of the Rideau Canal. This fun-filled day boasts a wide variety of heritage-themed events and entertainment, including blacksmithing, lace making, and musketry demonstrations, interactive tabletop exhibits, costumed characters, free admission to the Bytown Museum, and more! The event has grown enormously since its inception in 1995, and since 2008 has attracted an average of over 5,000 visitors annually!

Heritage Day in Ottawa is an annual event that encourages residents to explore their local heritage, to get involved with stewardship and advocacy groups, and to visit museums, archives, and places of architectural significance. It is a chance to recognize the contributions of the many dedicated volunteers who promote heritage conservation and public education about the city’s history.
On February 18th, 2014, members of the Society were present at Ottawa City Hall to take part in activities and speak with the public about the 100th Regiment.
