Rural Heritage Day is a celebration of history, reverie and reminiscence dedicated to the hard-working forefathers and foremothers 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 handicrafts of yesteryear. Stay until the evening and enjoy the "Spirit Reunion" (separate admission fees apply) a local fundraiser that features costumed 'Spirits" telling the stories of the early settlers buried there.
