Ecole du Soldat
April 14 @ 9:00 am - April 15 @ 5:00 pm CDT
12 Artisans, Craftspeople Re-enact the Colonial Era
A family-friendly and free event featuring Colonial living history come to life! Explore the traditions of the “School of the Soldier.” This is a fully packed weekend of lectures and camaraderie with plenty of events to see.
On Saturday, attend a public heritage auction of discovered “desirables” – memorabilia, collectibles, “accouterments,” utensils, and “watcha-may-call-its.” In addition, Ste. Geneviève has the greatest concentration of original French colonial buildings in North America. Plus it is the only surviving French colonial village in the United States.
At Ecole du Soldat we have activities, clothing, and demonstrate living skills of that early era.
