Whitaker Music Festival

Thank you for making the 2014 Whitaker Music Festival a record-breaking season! 

We hope you will join us again next summer.


Birds singing in the warm, rose-scented evenings signal it’s time for the summer Whitaker Music Festival. The open-air festival presents free Wednesday evening concerts under the stars every June through August. 

The festival is funded by the Whitaker Foundation, which supports St. Louis arts and parks to promote common heritage, celebrate diversity and encourage vitality within the community.
