Blues at the Arch Festival – FREE

The Gateway Arch Park Foundation is excited to host the 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.

Mark your calendars and plan to join us at the North Gateway of Gateway Arch National Park. The Festival will be from Friday, Aug. 11 through Saturday, Aug. 12, with an incredible Blues Brunch (ticketed) on Sunday, Aug. 13 to cap off the weekend.
