OSWEGO – The Fort Ontario Museum Shop, operated and run by the non-for-profit organization Friends of Fort Ontario, will participate in the Holiday Pop Up Market Saturday, Dec. 21, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Canal Commons, 193 W. First St., Oswego.

“This is a great opportunity to get your local history related gifts just in time for the holidays,” said Dan Laird, president of the Friends group. “Shoppers may choose from a variety of Fort Ontario items from ornaments and mugs to tee shirts, hats and books on local history, and more! A FoFO membership makes a great gift and we encourage people to buy a membership as a gift to friends and family.”

This is also a good opportunity to purchase or renew a Friends of Fort Ontario membership.

Members receive free admission to the fort during hours of operation, exclusive access to the fort ramparts to watch the Harborfest fireworks, and a 10 percent discount to most items in the museum gift shop at Fort Ontario.

Memberships are available at a variety of levels.
