Do You Want to Participate in the Best of St. Charles Foodie Fest?

St. Charles History Museum recognizes that the city of St. Charles has been a hub for unique cuisines and spirits.  As a community organization, we believe the goal of the Best of St. Charles Foodie Fest is to support the community and provide an opportunity for the businesses to showcase their products to a wide, public audience. The museum plans to highlight the history of the buildings that participating businesses currently occupy in order to give attendees a historic tour of St. Charles.  Fostering a strong relationship with community businesses and residents is an important goal of the museum.
