Wentzville Mayor Nick Guccione posted the following information in a Facebook group today:

The City is aware of two confirmed events that will be taking place within the city of Wentzville. The first is scheduled to originate at Holt High School tonight [Thursday, June 4] at 7 p.m. Participants will be walking down Schroeder Creek Blvd. to Pearce Blvd. and then back to Holt using Kent Drive and Northview Drive.

The second event is the Wentzville Unity March on Saturday, June 6 at 10 a.m. The walk will originate at the Wentzville United Methodist Church on Wall Street. Participants will use Wall Street, Pearce Blvd. and Luetkenhaus Blvd., before returning to the church.

The Police Department, as well as additional law enforcement agencies, continue to monitor information regarding an additional event planned for 3 p.m. today, which mentions shutting down Wentzville Parkway. This event has not been confirmed and no coordination with the City has taken place.

The Wentzville Unity Walk was planned by local community leaders. More information is available at https://www.facebook.com/events/730928081061647/

The police department posted on their Facebook page that they would provide updates and any expected road closures as they became available. They also asked for the community’s cooperation. “We are asking for your continued support, patience and understanding as we work together as a city to provide a safe outlet for public expression.”

  1. Is there anywhere we can get more info on the Holt High School protest. I’m near the area but can’t find anymore additional info. Should I call the PD since they organized with the demonstrators?

  2. I understand the need to p eacefully protest. But this should not be allowed during a panedemic. Wentzville has 52 cases of covid-19 which has stabilized. Allowing this allows more people coming into our city from hot spots in our county and St. Louis County.

  3. You’re not working together as a community if you allow a minority of protesters to shut down Wentzville’ most used thoroughfare from the majority of residents. Keep them on the freaking sidewalk! Obey the LAW!
