Florissant Old Town Partners
Florissant Old Town Partners was incorporated August 26, 1996, under the not-for-profit Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code by a group of people representing citizens, businesses and government who believe that Old Town Florissant is an attractive area where persons experience a stable, healthy community with a rich cultural heritage.
FOTP’s goals are to work to:
Promote cultural diversity.
Promote neighborhood harmony.
Combat neighborhood deterioration through economic development compatible with the history of the area.
Work with other organizations of similar purpose.
The office at 601 rue St. Charles is known as the Girardier House. The house, now a Florissant landmark, was moved from its long standing location in Old Town Florissant to its present location. The office is an 1860’s French farm home and was donated to FOTP by Lowell Girardier, a local builder, who was developing the land but wanted the house to be preserved.
FOTP is involved in many activities throughout the year including:
Pancake Breakfast – every February
Florissant Valley of Flowers Festival – first weekend in May
Valley of Flowers Car Show – during the Valley of Flowers Festival
Flea Market & Farmers Market – July
Florissant Fall Festival – fall
Christmas in Old Town Florissant – December
