This weekend event features lectures on the history and life activities of the French Colonial period in the Mississippi Valley and Illinois country.
Reenactors will be present at the Jour de Fete Grounds at the Ste. Genevive Welcome Center to demonstrate and talk about French Colonial and militia life. On Saturday afternoon, attend a public heritage auction of discovered 'desirables' – memorabilia, collectibles - 'accoutrements,' utensils, and 'watch'a-may-call-its.'
This will be a fully packed weekend of lectures and camaraderie with plenty of places to stay and things to see.
