Due to Mississippi River flood stage levels, the Celebrate St. Louis Summer Concerts will relocate to Soldiers Memorial Military Museum and the surrounding parks (streets will be blocked from Tucker to 14th and from Market to Pine). Our new location in the heart of downtown will provide a majestic backdrop to celebrate St. Louis and listen to great music under the stars.

Come to the free Celebrate St. Louis Summer Concerts on the Budweiser Main Stage. Gates open at 6 p.m. each evening with the opener taking the stage at 6 p.m. and the headliner beginning at 8 p.m.

Friday, July 9 Common with DJ Needles

Saturday, July 10 Slightly Stoopid with Fundamental Elements

Friday, July 16 Kenny Wayne Shepherd with Jeremiah Johnson & the Sliders

Saturday, July 17 Clint Black with The Johnny Henry Band

Soldiers Memorial is located on Chestnut between 13th and 14th streets. For complete concert venue, which is flanked by some of St. Louis’ architectural treasures, the streets will be blocked from Tucker to 14th and from Market to Pine.  

Getting There:        
Guests are encouraged to take MetroLink to the Civic Center stop, which is a few short blocks from the concert venue. If you drive, there are public parking garages in the area.  

Street Closures:        
Chestnut between 13th and Tucker will be closed for the duration of the concert series. Additional street closures on Chestnut from 13th to 14th, on 13th from Market to Pine and on Pine from Tucker to 14th will occur the days of the concerts and will have minimal impact to traffic flow. 

Food and Beverage:    
Food and beverage vendors will be readily available throughout the outdoor concert venue and proceeds from sales help to underwrite the event and support the Fair Saint Louis Foundation’s Community Vendor Program, where local non-profit organizations provide the volunteers in beverage booths to raise funds for their organizations. Outside food and beverage will not be allowed in the concert venue.  

Additionally, Saturday evenings will feature Sauce Café where guests can enjoy tablecloth dining under the stars while watching the concert.  Reservations are $30 per person, not including beverage, tax, and gratuity.  If seating is available, walk-ins will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Sauce Café restaurants include: Lucas Park Grille on July 10; Highway 61 Roadhouse and Kitchen on July 17; and, El Borracho on July 24. For reservations, please call 314-434-3434

School Supply Drive:    “John Legend’s Show Me Campaign” School Supply Drive will continue at all Celebrate St. Louis Summer Concerts. Concertgoers are encouraged to pick up a school supply (pens, paper, pencils, crayons, etc...) at their local Schnucks and bring to the concert. School Supply collection bins will be located at each entrance and all collections will benefit local St. Louis kids via KidSmart, Missouri’s only free education supply store.
