Rural Heritage Day

Rural Heritage Day


October 22, 2022

Rural Heritage Day, the fourth Saturday in October, is a celebration of history, reverie, and reminiscence dedicated to the hard-working founders of Ste. Geneviève. Come see how it used to be done: whether it’s farming, cooking, spinning, lace-making, leatherworking, soap-making, wood carving, gardening, apple pressing or good old-fashioned games.

Watch demonstrations of the handicrafts of yesteryear and stay for the evening and enjoy the “Deja Vu Spirit Reunion,” a fundraiser for Historic Memorial Cemetery that features costumed “Spirits” telling the stories of the early settlers buried there, put on by the Foundation for Restoration.
