Since 409 Family launched in April 2022, it’s been our mission to be a bridge between every aspect of the community, whether they’re neighbors from different cultures and socio-economic groups, families looking for places to volunteer together, bringing small businesses and customers together, and more. It’s been an amazing year, and we’re working on our biggest bridge yet – partnering with the Beaumont Convention & Visitors Bureau to bring the entire community together for a day of fun, joy, and togetherness at the inaugural 409 Day!
On April 25, 409 Family & the Beaumont CVB will be receiving a proclamation from Beaumont City Council declaring the last Saturday of every April ‘409 Day’. The 1st annual 409 Day, brought to you by Eastex Urgent Care, will take place April 29 from 11 AM – 6 PM at the newly-renovated Tyrrell Park Nature Center, located inside Tyrrell Park at 3930 Babe Zaharias Drive, in Beaumont. We’ve got over 70 confirmed vendors and organizations participating, live music, inflatables, food trucks, free crafts and activities, kickball, disc golf, and more!
And we’re just getting started! We are also partnering with restaurants, boutiques, and other brick and mortars who can’t be at the event and asking them to offer special deals or packages, host happy hours, or other fun celebrations in order to make this a true community-wide event!
We can’t wait to continue to connect the community in new and exciting ways,
and keep reminding everyone of all the good the 409 has to offer!
