Thanks to festival supporters

June 18, 2014 

On June 7, the Belleville Historical Society sponsored the Old Belleville Street Festival (Alt Belleville Strassenfest) to honor the city's German heritage as part of the Belleville bicentennial celebration. The festival was a collaboration of many civic, cultural, educational, patriotic, religious and business organizations as well as more than 100 individuals who volunteered their time and talents to make this event successful.

We would like to thank all of them and the more than 1,000 guests who strolled the streets of the Old Belleville Historic District, witnessed the historical demonstrations, enjoyed period music and dancing, toured the district's homes, sampled the food and braved a short rain in honor of Belleville's rich history.
