St. Charles Restaurant Week


St. Charles Restaurant Week starts next week, going from February 22-26. The event will showcase many restaurants throughout town.


Because of the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic and state mitigations, this year’s Restaurant Week will be different than years past. With the tagline of “Carry Out, To Carry On”, restaurants have the ability to promote their own menus and specials. For a full list of participating restaurants and their specials, please visit our website.


There will also be a raffle for a chance to win $100 back to St. Charles restaurants. Enter in a raffle by sending us a photo of your meal or receipt to the St. Charles Business Alliance. Find the official Facebook event page here.

St. Charles St. Patrick's Celebration


We are just under a month away from the St. Charles St. Patrick's Celebration!

The St. Charles St. Patrick’s Celebration, which will be held on Saturday, March 13, will not include the St. Patrick’s Parade. In place of the parade, the St. Charles Business Alliance will be hosting events around town, including a festive Photo Op Area and Roaming Bagpipers. St. Charles businesses will also offer St. Patrick’s promotions to be featured on the St. Patrick’s Celebration website.​


Other events during the St. Patrick’s Celebration will be a Treasure Hunt, where families can find Leprechauns in downtown St. Charles Businesses and be entered to win a “Pot of Gold” containing a selection of prizes from around St. Charles. For more information on the event.
