No matter where you land on the political spectrum, you’ll probably agree that the words “American heritage” are about as open to interpretation as the Bible’s Book of Revelation.
Ours is a land wrested from its native inhabitants, a nation founded by individuals fleeing religious persecution, and a country built on the backs of immigrants. So much for congruity. The ironic beauty in our inability to agree on a definition of “American heritage” is that we were probably never meant to. So what better way to celebrate your wildly subjective sense of American identity than a real-life romp through our history books at the American Heritage Festival at Queen Creek’s Schnepf Farms, 24610 South Rittenhouse Road, on Friday, November 18? The “largest living history event” in the Southwest begins at 10 a.m. and is open to all ages. Admission is $15 at the gate. Visit americanheritagefestival.com or call 480-777-1776 — no joke — for details.
