Castroville’s 4th of July celebration has grown into a multi-day event, with the Chamber of Commerce heading up the hometown parade through the streets of historic Castroville.
Whether you’re riding on a decorated trailer, a vintage tractor or car, or even a big red fire truck, it’s an old fashioned small town parade with trophies for the best in each category! It’s a great way to advertise a new Business or Service, so sign up for the 2018 4th of July Parade at the Chamber office.
More information to come.
Each year, the Chamber hosts our annual banquet in which we recognize important individuals in the community who have shown dedicated service and commitment to Castroville.
The “granddaddy” of church festivals celebrated its 135th birthday this year! A huge plate full of freshly cooked brisket and homemade sausage bring folks from far & wide. With two stages of live music and entertainment, horseshoe and washer tournaments, bingo, Boardwalk for kids, homemade quilt raffle, an old fashioned beirgarten, and a huge silent auction, there’s something for every age here for a day of fun and friendship.
135 years ago, a gathering of only a handful of St. Louis parish families and their friends met in Biediger’s river bottom near Castroville, to celebrate the feast day of their patron saint, St. Louis IX of France, and the now famous and century-and-a-quarter-old St. Louis Day Celebration was born. That first picnic cost the parishioners just $25, and the entire tab was footed by the St. Louis Men’s Society of the parish. Needless to say, both the cost of putting on the festival and its attendance has swollen tremendously since its humble birth.
