Another beautiful week in the East Village! Come down and take a stroll to enjoy the flag displays to celebrate National Welcoming Week and the World Food and Music Festival. These flags represent the heritage of Iowans who have made Greater Des Moines their home.

We are excited for our event tomorrow, Historic East Village Roll & Stroll but want to stress to everyone the importance of following our social distancing guidelines:

-Pre-pay via online with merchants to eliminate currency contact, and be prepared for cashless payments onsite.

-Have a spot cleared in backseat or trunk for purchases to be placed by store employee.

-Use hand sanitizer to disinfect after any intended or unintended contacts with employees and store products.

-Shoppers are to wear masks when interacting with employees.

-If strolling, shoppers are to maintain 6 ft. social distancing and pay attention to markers.

-Follow the instructions and guidelines posted by the merchants and comply with their health and sanitation requests.

Our top priority is the safety of everyone in our neighborhood. So please, practice social distancing and Wear Your Mask to minimize the spread of Covid-19!
Businesses across our communities and in our neighborhood have been hit hard during the pandemic. Join us for a safe social distancing event in the Village this Saturday! Whether you stroll in or roll up for curbside, we’ve got you covered!
We will be highlighting businesses In The village and what they have to offer all week long! So, stay tuned!!

The East Village is a historically diverse neighborhood of business owners and residents. Black lives matter. We do not support police violence. We support non-violent protest.
