Meachum Vendors

Celebrate with us!

18th Annual Mary Meachum Freedom Crossing Celebration

Every year, a variety of partners plan and host the Mary Meachum Freedom Crossing Celebration on the Mississippi Greenway. The theme of the event changes each year and shines a spotlight on important – yet rarely told or not widely known – black history in St. Louis. The 2020 event rescheduled for Saturday, October 17 will recognize the 150th anniversary of the 15th Amendment and the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. Be part of this history event with a booth for your organization or business! Learn more about the event here.
