Across the St. Louis region, citizens, businesses and organizations will be celebrating 3.14 Day; a chance to revel in everything that makes St. Louis great.

Saturday, March 14 (314!) also marks the anniversary of the #STLMade movement, launched a year ago to shine a light on “the amazing things St. Louis’ innovative, tenacious and big-hearted people are doing every day to improve and grow our community.”

#STLMade has attracted nearly 30,000 social media followers and you can see the hashtag all around town, especially on signage for new developments and rehabs.

On Thursday, March 12 at 7 p.m. there’s a special Venture Cafe at CIC St. Louis in Cortex. A panel of business and community leaders will share how they fit into the STLMade movement. That event is free and open to the public. 

Saturday, there will be a number of local events, including the St. Patrick’s Day Run in Downtown St. Louis, the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Cottleville and the 5K Pup Run in Forest Park. Additionally, businesses, stores, restaurants, bars and breweries will be offering special 3.14 products and discounts. The full list of participating businesses and events can be found at thestl.com/314day.
