Rural Heritage Day

October 24, midnight

Historic Downtown Ste. Genevieve 573-883-7097

Rural Heritage Day is a celebration of history, reverie and reminiscence dedicated to the hard working forefathers and foremothers of Ste. Genevieve. Come see how it used to be done – whether it’s farming, cooking, spinning, lace making, leather working, soap making, wood carving, gardening or good old-fashioned games. Watch demonstrations of handicrafts of yesteryear. Stay till the evening and enjoy the “Spirit Reunion” (separate admission fees apply) a local fundraiser that features costumed ‘Spirits’ telling the stories of the early settlers buried there. This event is sponsored by the Lion’s Club of Ste. Genevieve.
