First Annual Peach Festival Hosted by Rick’s Roadside Market Benefits Teams and Organizations That Serve Local Youth

Enjoy 33 varieties of Missouri peaches, delicious food, peach beer and wines, variety of vendors and 2 full days of good old fashioned family fun.

The first annual peach festival in St. Charles County brings 33 varieties of Missouri peaches to market while inviting local coaches and leaders of youth organizations  to raise money for their groups by participating in "Take One for the Team and Get Dunked" challenge.

The peach festival celebrates community with delicious food, free entertainment, face painting, caricature artists, balloon artists, a 30 animal petting zoo, peach wines and special peach beer. The famous Blue Owl Bakery and Restaurant will make their debut offering their delicious salads, sandwiches and baked goods.  The Dirty Soap Band, Bob Gilda and Alex Rosales are among the entertainment scheduled for the festival.  The festival will begin on Saturday, August 4th from 8am - 4pm and Sunday, August 5th from 10am - 4pm. 

Missouri has a huge peach harvest and Rick's Roadside is excited about bringing them to market.  Peaches have long been revered.  The ancient Chinese referred to the peach as "the fruit of the emperors" and during the reign of Queen Victoria the peach had to be served in a fancy cloth napkin.  Missouri is one of six states that grow peaches commercially.  It only seemed reasonable to celebrate!

In addition to the food and fun, a dunking booth is being donated for both days to help local sport teams and organization raise money for their groups.  An hour is being offered to any team or organization leader that would like to "Take One for the Team and Get Dunked".  The money raised during the hour goes back to provide for their needs.

If you would like more information about the festival or how to sign up for the dunking booth please contact Rick's Roadside Market at 636-734-7420 or email at marciarodriguez1@yahoo.com

I cannot find where the festival is being held; where is it being held?

The location should be in the article itself, but if you look at the picture of the flyer, at the bottom it says 5382 Gutermuth Road in Cottleville.

The festival is located 1/2 mile from St. Joseph Church in Cottleville on Gutermuth Road. If you are mapquesting the address please use 5335 Gutermuth Road. The new address is not in the mapquest data base.

I have noticed this problem. You guys need to state the location of these events. Not just an address but a town.
