The Chesterfield Historical Society has a number of activities each year. The Village is open the second weekend in June when the Ste. Claire Voyageurs (1750 era fur traders) have an overnight encampment on the village Green. We are also open for Log Cabin Day (the last Sunday in June), the second weekend in July World War II re-enactors have an overnight encampment, the second weekend in August (when Civil War re-enactors have an overnight encampment), and Heritage Day (the third weekend in September). We have a pasta dinner in the spring and a harvest dinner in the fall. Our poinsettia and wreath sale is an ongoing event. Each Christmas we have the school open in conjunction with the Township’s tree lighting ceremony (the first weekend in December).
