Wentzville Days Festival and Liberty Fest Canceled
With the arrival of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the United States, the City of Wentzville has been working closely with the St. Charles County Health Department and other public health officials to protect the community. The health and safety of the public and employees remain the highest priority. Although the statewide Stay-At-Home Order is scheduled to be lifted in Missouri in early May, the Wentzville Parks and Recreation Department understands that continued social distancing will be necessary to reduce the spread of the virus.
The uncertainty of the next few months makes planning large festivals like Wentzville Days and Liberty Fest very difficult. In the best interest of our community, we have decided to cancel Wentzville Days and Liberty Fest, as well as all Fourth of July activities including the parade, free swim at Progress Park Pool, the skating event at the Wentzville Ice Arena and the fireworks show.

Public Service Recognition Week
Celebrated the first week of May since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week is organized annually by the Public Employees Roundtable and its member organizations to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county and local government employees. Public servants do amazing things across our great nation, around the world, and in our hometown and community. In the midst of the current crisis, City of Wentzville staff are working hard to continue to provide the high level of service you’ve come to expect. So, please, take a moment this month to thank a public service employee for their dedication to a job well done!
