Ecole du Soldat (School of the Soldier) in Ste. Genevieve
This weekend event features artisans and craftspeople of the era as well as lectures on the history and life activities of the French Colonial period in the Mississippi Valley and Illinois country. Re-enactors will be present to demonstrate and talk about French Colonial and militia life. On the last weekend in April, residents and visitors alike will have the change to 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, children’s activities, and camaraderie with plenty of places to stay and things to see.
Ecole du Soldat is held annually the 4th weekend in April.
