Scholarship to guitar program to be awarded
Rick’s Roadside Market will celebrate the musical talent of local children from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 22, as St. Louis and St. Charles chapters of Childbloom Guitar Program entertain market visitors while sharing techniques that encourage children to excel in music.
The Childbloom Concert event is a children’s event with vendors, food, art workshops, face painters and other activities that will be fun for the entire family. A local child will be awarded a scholarship to attend the music program and become a part of the St. Charles Childbloom Guitar Program. The scholarship will be awarded by Cottleville Mayor Don Yarber at 1 p.m., at the market located at 5382 Gutermuth Road in Cottleville.
Rick’s Roadside Market is a large renovated barn that rests on land that was home to the Hopewell Indian community dating back to 400 BC. The owners envisioned a farmers market that would become a gathering place for business owners and residents resulting in a more viable local economy; increased access to fresh, nutritious food; fundraising opportunities for local charities and stronger social networks that help keep the community strong.
Hours of operation are Friday from 3p.m. until 7p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., and Sunday from 10a.m. until 3 p.m. Unique vendors are welcome to apply for participation in the market.
