Past Event

Gateway Arch Park Foundation hosts its eighth annual Blues at the Arch presented by the Missouri Division of Tourism, #VisitMO!

This popular end-of-summer celebration pays tribute to St. Louis’ storied blues history and showcases the talents of national and local artists. Produced in partnership with the National Blues Museum and the National Park Service, this free festival is the only one of its kind to take place on national park grounds.

With nine food and drink vendors to choose from, a free Sunrise Yoga fitness class, a Kids’ Corner, and a Saturday fireworks show, you don’t want to miss it!

The Festival will be from Friday, Aug. 11 through Saturday, Aug. 12, with an incredible Blues Brunch (ticketed) on Sunday, Aug. 13, at the nearby 612North restaurant to cap off the weekend.

Mark your calendars and join us at the North Gateway of Gateway Arch National Park.

P.S. August 11-13 will be a busy weekend for Downtown St. Louis, with Taste of St. Louis and other events also attracting thousands of entertainment seekers. Visitors and staycationers are encouraged to book their hotel rooms, schedule their Arch tram rides, buy their City Museum and St. Louis Aquarium tickets, and make their restaurant reservations early this year—it’s going to be a weekend to remember.
