Events, times and locations:
In honor of the day that Louis Bolduc would have celebrated in lieu of his birthday, the Feast of St. Louis, we set this weekend aside as time for members of our first families to gather and be honored here at the Bolduc House Museum.
With lots of fun activities for everyone all weekend long, we especially invite you to meet members of the Bolduc, Pratte, and Valle extended families and slave descendants as well as members of the Shawnee, Delaware, and Osage tribes.
There will be stories, music, activities, demonstrations, and your chance to participate in Family History, Oral History, and Living History. See what is new at our museum and enjoy the people who left such important legacies in the land. First family members are admitted free. In addition, both days will feature a performance of Moliere’s School for Wives. Admission for the performance is $5.
This year, St Francois State Park will be celebrating its 50th anniversary. Before it was a park, the area known as the Pike Run Hills was home to a small community of miners, farmers and even moonshiners.
To celebrate the lives of the people who called the area home, the park will hold a living history event featuring historic demonstrations, including blacksmithing, basket making, rope making, Ozark games, mining, a moonshine still, cross cut saws and much, much more! Live music will be performed throughout the day and a ribbon cutting will be held.
Help celebrate Missouri's 193rd birthday.
Missouri became the 24th state on Aug. 10, 1821. This event at the First Missouri State Capitol State Historic Site will feature special demonstrations, interpreters in period dress and an open house. The public is invited to view the buildings where the state’s first senators and representatives met from 1821 to 1826 to go about the business of operating as a new state.
The Peck Brothers Dry Goods and Hardware Store and residence are also included during the open house and festivities. Bring the kids to learn about Missouri's state symbols and play some games from the 1820s, when Missouri became a state. At 1 p.m., the World Bird Sanctuary will present their "Raptor Awareness" program, which highlights native Missouri species. And, oh yes, what's a birthday party without free cake and punch? For more information, please call the site.
