The O’Fallon Historic
The O’Fallon Historical Society works to keep the history of this vibrant town alive. The group meets at the Society’s Log Cabin Museum, located in Civic Park, four times a year. The society encourages new members to join, with only $10 owed in dues per year. The O’Fallon Historical Society’s Log Cabin Museum has been around since the mid-19th century. You can visit the museum free of charge, with openings during the weekend from May to October. The society is also working on an oral history project, using audio interviews with citizens who remember days gone by.
Sisters of the Most P
If you are Catholic and looking for a religious order to support, check out the 160-year-old Sisters of the Most Precious Blood of O’Fallon. This order has various educational and artistic programs to help the less fortunate. You can join the CPPS Partners in Mission. Invitations are handed out in January, and then the candidate begins a 16-month journey of meeting with the co-directors and going through intense study of the religious order. Completion of the study is marked by a one-year commitment to the order as well as an invitation to join a small faith community with fellow members.
Heritage & Freedom Fe
Looking for a way to celebrate the nation’s birthday? Look no further than the Heritage & Freedom Fest. Occurring annually on July 2 through July 4, the festival brings a carnival-like atmosphere, where you can play games, enjoy rides, and eat cotton candy. The festival also hosts several bands, with both a country music and a rock n’ roll night. Heritage & Freedom Fest concludes its activities with an outstanding fireworks display as well as a parade. The event costs nothing to attend; however, the vendors and rides require you to purchase tickets.
