Jour de Fete Ste. Genevieve

(redirected from Days of Celebration)

Ste. Genevieve, Jour de Fêtê (Days of Celebration)

Second full weekend in August
Ste. Genevieve became the first permanent settlement in the state of Missouri when the French arrived in 1725. At one time it rivaled St. Louis in size and importance, and the town still prides itself on its authentic 18th- and 19th-century architecture.
The annual Jour de FÉte that has been held in mid-August each year since 1965 not only celebrates the area's French heritage but is a German and Spanish festival as well. Historic homes dating back to 1770 are opened to the public, people dress in colonial costumes, and arts and crafts are on display.
