Gateway Arch Park Foundation is excited to host our 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.

About the Foundation:

Gateway Arch Park Foundation’s mission is to ensure the Gateway Arch, its grounds, neighboring public spaces, and attractions will be a vital, welcoming, and well-supported resource for the community and nation for generations to come.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit conservancy and the official philanthropic partner of Gateway Arch National Park and its surrounding areas in Downtown St. Louis.

The Foundation was initially founded in 2009 as part of the public-private partnership to fund and coordinate the development of the CityArchRiver Project, which connected, invigorated and expanded the Arch grounds. This project represented the largest private investment in a national park in U.S. history and established the Foundation as a model for other conservancies across the country.

Today, we collaborate with partners in the Arch Alliance to operate and maintain these improvements and continue to innovate to make the jewel of St. Louis — the Gateway Arch — a destination of choice for generations to come.
