Make plans to attend the only music festival that happens under the iconic St. Louis Arch, the Blues at the Arch Festival returns from August 11th through the 13th. Blues music and St. Louis go hand in hand (I mean the NHL team in St. Louis is the Blues!), but what exactly is Blues at the Arch? On their site, they say...

"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."

If you want more information on what Blues at the Arch is all about, check out this video I found on YouTube from FOX 2 St. Louis

I absolutely need to check this out. I use to go to blues festivals in Chicago every summer when I lived there, and I love going to Blues in the District here in Quincy! There is just something about Blues music in the summertime with a drink in your hand and great food in the other hand that just makes sense.
