Looking for some end of summer fun? You won't want to miss this event held in downtown Wentzville on Allen, Linn and Main Streets.The festival features live musical entertainment, live street performances and demonstrations, carnival rides and games, arts and craft booths, and food booths. Wabash Days, now in its 10th year, is a celebration of the town's history and railroad heritage. This festival is reminiscent of old time fairs and street festivals that were held in many downtown areas. We are continually working on new events and ideas to provide an event that will be fun for everyone!
The Civil War reenactment will coincide with the festival this year. The Battle of Wentzville will remember those soldiers who fought here in Wentzville during The Civil War, 152 years ago. Reenactors will be camping on properties south of the tracks. The public will be encouraged to visit the camps to see how life was lived during this time when brothers fought brothers. "Soldiers" will demonstrate their equipment and how it was used. "Battle" will be held at 2:00 pm at the "Wisk' property west of the Community Center. A Victorian period ball will be held Saturday evening at the Green Lateran Center. The public will be welcome and encouraged to take part. A Ladies Tea will also be held at the Green Lateran on Saturday morning.
