Saturday, August 12th, 2023 • 2pm - 10pm • Francis Park

Grub & Groove is a free annual event in Francis Park! The event showcases food and drink from exceptional local restaurants and live music from some of St. Louis’ finest musicians. While Grub & Groove is a great opportunity to connect with neighbors and friends, any proceeds from the event are used to improve Francis Park and the surrounding neighborhood. Previous years have seen improvements to the park lighting, crosswalks, and amenity signage. The event is organized by a volunteer committee made up of neighborhood residents looking to give back; if you’re interested in being involved, please let us know. We hope you’ll join us to eat, dance, and be merry!
