Rural Heritage Day

Fourth Saturday in October

Rural Heritage Day is a celebration of history, reverie and reminiscence dedicated to the hard working founders 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 the handicrafts of yesteryear. Stay till the evening and enjoy the “Spirit Reunion” – a fundraiser for Memorial Cemetery that features costumed ‘Spirits’ telling the stories of the early settlers buried there.
