The fourth annual Marquette Community Day was another huge success! Dutchtown neighbors, led by MCD founders Ben Robinson and Markus Haskins, gave out backpacks and school supplies for children in the Dutchtown neighborhood, along with sharing local community resources and providing a fun day out to create a unique, community-oriented celebration in Marquette Park.
The final weekend of March brought together Dutchtown businesses, organizations, neighbors, and shoppers from across St. Louis for an exceptional display of the strong community here in our neighborhood. Music, food, and fun brought people from all walks of life into the streets of Dutchtown.
Shop Downtown Dutchtown on Friday, March 26th and Saturday, March 27th! Neighborhood merchants, pop-up vendors, non-profits and more will be on Meramec Street offering new inventory, special deals, information, resources, and more!
