Come and learn about French
Colonial life at this family-friendly, living
history event. Come to see
Sainte Genevieve, considered one of the “10 best undiscovered small
cities” in the United States, and explore the town as you learn
about traditions of the “School of the Soldier.” On Saturday attend
a public heritage auction of discovered 'desirables' - memorabilia,
collectibles, 'accoutrements', utensils, and 'watch'a-may-call-its'.
Sainte Genevieve has the greatest concentration of original French
colonial buildings in North America and is the only surviving French
colonial village in the United States. There will be a French
encampment, cannon salutes, and 18th century craft demonstrations.
This is a fully packed weekend of lectures
and camaraderie with plenty of places to stay and see.
