Description: 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.
