Rally For Women

Saturday, July 24   10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

What better place to celebrate women’s right to vote than Sauder Village. Join us for a day of celebration as we present the performance of "Rally" - an outdoor reenactment of a 1920s era women's rally by the Glacity Theatre. Guests, actors, and league members will march up the new 1920s Main Street to the bandstand where the reenactment will take place. Guests will have an opportunity to make sashes, signs, and even participate in the march! In 2020, the United States marked the centennial of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, which says that “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.” The 19th Amendment was a hard-won success of the U.S. women's suffrage movement.
