Grub & Groove is a free festival, located in the southwest City of St. Louis neighborhood of St. Louis Hills. The festival has taken place in Francis Park, one of the city’s best, since its inception in 2012. What started as a simple neighborhood festival has evolved into one of the top events of the summer for St. Louisians across both the city and county. Today, Grub & Groove serves nearly 10,000 attendees with a full day of entertainment that includes the best of local restaurants, makers, family entertainment, breweries, distilleries, and businesses. Organized through the non-profit South City Investment Corp. (SCIC), Grub & Groove is the group’s major fundraising event to generate funds for community improvement projects. In addition to sponsorship, the proceeds from bar sales and official merchandise during the event all go towards the organization.
