Citywalk News for September

This past Friday several members of the Ferguson Special Business District and the Ferguson Main Street Board attended a Strong Towns meet and greet.


Strong Towns described, “As a media organization leading a national movement for change. We’re challenging every American to fundamentally rethink how our cities are built, and we’re shining a spotlight on an approach that will make us truly prosperous.”


As we talked, every person had heard of Ferguson and each person knew something different about us. One young couple spoke about the houses and how beautiful they were, another lady spoke about the Ferguson Brewhouse, the organizer spoke highly about EarthDance Organic Farm School and yet another spoke about the new lofts. It was an honor to able to represent this diverse town!


Fall is in the air; the kids are back to school and we can start enjoying those cool evenings on the patio again. Drake’s Place, Marley’s Bar and Grill, Ferguson Brewing Company, Cork, Baked Pizza, Cathy’s Kitchen, and Vincezo’s all include outdoor seating. We invite you to take a stroll after dinner and visit our shops and galleries in the downtown district.


Speaking of September, September means one thing in Ferguson, STREETFEST! This year’s festival is Sept. 28/29 and features great live music, food, retail booths and last year’s favorite – the glowing bubble bus. If you want to get involved (we always need volunteers), contact Marveena marveena@fergusonmainstreet.org. Dirty Muggs will be featured Friday night and Super Jam Saturday night.


The farmers market continues through October, with the third-annual Farm to Table, Saturday, Oct. 6th at Plaza 501. Tickets available every Saturday at the farmers market. The community garden is beginning to take shape and will be ready for fall planting, anyone interested in volunteering or reserving a plot can contact the Friends of the Market Garden Committee at fomgarden@gmail.com.


Preparing for the holiday season, Northern Lights will be held at Plaza 501, Sunday Nov. 25th 4-8pm this year. After the parade, stay for the tree lighting, free carriage rides and kids’ events.
