Saints & Sinners 2019


Grab a drink, dance the Charleston, spin the roulette wheel, and dodge the coppers! On June 23, the Roaring Twenties are back at Grey Roots! Win some prizes at the secret speakeasy & costume contest, and don't miss the sassy shows!

Saints & Sinners brings Moreston Heritage Village to life with the colourful history of Grey County during the prohibition & bootlegging era. Dress in your 1920s best and taste samples from local beer, wine, cider, and spirits producers. Snack on delicious food from local vendors. Learn the Charleston and get moving with live music. Pop into the local Speakeasy, the Black Rabbit. Strut your stuff in the costume contest and win some awesome prizes. And watch out for the prohibition protests, the rowdy partiers, and the paddy wagon scooping up trouble makers!

It’s time to find out: are you a Saint or a Sinner?
