In a city that loves its food as much as it loves its music and art, Taste of St Louis is the premier event. The largest consumer event in Missouri- and one of the largest outdoor events in the Midwest draws more than 250,000 attendees over three days in late September. Unlike other big-city food festivals, Taste of St Louis stays completely true to its purpose- to celebrate and showcase the very best that area top chefs and finest restaurants, artists and musicians have to offer.

More than 45 of St Louis’s top restaurants set up their kitchens in the events’ Restaurant Row- offering attendees plates of what can truly be described as ‘the finest food in Missouri’.

Meanwhile, on the Culinary Stage, area top chefs compete for the title of Taste of St Louis Culinary Champion.

The Village gives patrons a unique shopping experience featuring an eclectic mix of finders and creators .

At the Main Stage, attendees will experience a wide variety of free, high quality entertainment ranging from high brow classical- to grass roots rock and roll. A Kids Kitchen offers top notch, unique family entertainment continuously. A new addition to the Budweiser Taste of St. Louis – The Goose Island School of Cooking Stage, powered by L’Ecole Culinaire –hosts educational and entertaining culinary demonstrations from local and national chefs and culinary and beverage experts.
