Whitaker Music Festival


Due to ongoing capacity limitations and safety considerations, the Missouri Botanical Garden will not hold its annual Whitaker Music Festival in 2021.
The Whitaker Music Festival is a beloved summer tradition that presents free Wednesday evening concerts under the stars. 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.

While the Garden looks forward to welcoming visitors to this event each summer, the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and visitors are the primary concern for the Garden. We continue to follow guidelines from both local and national health experts to protect our visitors, volunteers and staff as we make decisions about Garden operations.

The Garden is grateful for the ongoing support of the Whitaker Foundation, and we hope to resume the Whitaker Music Festival in 2022.

The Whitaker Music Festival has hosted dozens of St. Louis' finest musicians. You could be next!
