Bootlegging Lore of the Great Swamp

Aug 20, 2022

Bootlegging Lore of the Great Swamp

This unique tour features the legends and lore surrounding Southern Ontario's single largest forested wetland - the Greenock Swamp.

Stories abound about the bootlegging operations that prospered in the Greenock Swamp during prohibition. Hear about the cat and mouse antics that went on between the the bootleggers and the officers of the law at that time.  

Local actors help bring the stories alive with their characterization of the well known bootleggers of the day!

Tour some of the historic buildings and enjoy local beer tasting during this adventure! Great fun and excitement! Of course, no Bruce County tour would be complete without a full-course meal to wrap things up! Bus transportation included!

There are three Greenock Swamp Tours; Legends of the Great Swamp; Bootlegging Lore of the Great Swamp and The Great Bank Heist.  All three tours begin at 2pm and conclude at 7pm.  Bus transportation included.
