August 14th • 2pm - 9:30pm • 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!

Please remember that outside food and drink are prohibited; we ask that you support the vendors and sponsors who help keep the event free for all. Tents are not allowed within the main event footprint. And we do not encourage pets to attend as the crowd and noise can be unsettling.
