I want to make known to all my Missouri and Illinois blog readers a festival that celebrates the reformation. It is Providence Church’s Reformation Day Faire, held the weekend of October 23rd and 24th (2009) near Peoria, Illinois.
The festival this year celebrates the work of God in and through John Calvin.
The faire will also feature famed Celtic musician Charlie Zahm, who will be performing both days.
So come and visit, and dress in a modest period costume! There will be great teaching, highland games, a boffer war, historical dancing, and psalm singing.
The St. Andrews Olde Towne Square will feature candle making, printing, book binding, an armory, stained glass, soap making, woodworking, sketching, and weaving.
We’ll be there on Saturday, God willing, and so prick your ears for my son playing his bagpipe. We might even be performing a few songs as our entire band, who knows?
A good time for one and all!
