For decades the St. Charles Bazaar has provided a day of family fun in the month of September. While the pandemic prevented the event from occurring in 2020, organizers are dedicated to making the 2021 Bazaar the best yet.

Rain or shine, the 43rd Annual St. Charles Bazaar will be held on Saturday at 58 W. Fifth Street in Peru. Festivities will include a rummage sale, live music, garden shop, book nook, bake sale, bounce house, Wheel of Fortune, a cash raffle with a $1,000 grand prize, delicious food and a tiki bar. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own chairs. More than 500 attendees are expected, and all members of the community are invited to pop in to enjoy the festivities. Admission is free.
