ST. LOUIS – Following the success of City Social — Downtown’s premier block party in May — more free, outdoor events are coming to Downtown St. Louis, adding vibrancy to the heart of the metro. Starting Thursday, June 6, Greater St. Louis, Inc. will present Downtown Summer Nights, a weekly party in Kiener Plaza from 5-8 p.m. that will run through August. 

"Downtown Summer Nights is the perfect way to celebrate summer in St. Louis, and Kiener Plaza is the perfect place,” said Kurt Weigle, Chief Downtown Officer for Greater St. Louis, Inc. “What is better than having a drink with friends or colleagues under the shadow of the iconic Gateway Arch?”  

Entertainment will change each week and feature music, food, and fun with St. Louis’s best DJs including DJ Nico Marie, DJ Stazi, DJ Cuddy, and more. The lineup includes movie nights, dance performances, and a special Black-owned market for Juneteeth. Food and drinks will be available for purchase on site from St. Louis’ favorite food trucks and pop-up bars.
