Here are 5 ideas to help you Explore St. Louis this weekend.

Taste of Maplewood

Maplewood and Richmond heights are joining forces for the 14th annual Taste of Maplewood Street Festival. With festivities starting the evening of May 20, vendors will have tasty bites, drinks and fun items on display for attendees to enjoy and purchase. Attendance is free and the festival will also include two stages with live entertainment.

Botanical & Blooms II exhibit

The Green Door Art Gallery is hosting an opening reception on May 20 from 5:00-8:00 p.m for their Botanical & Blooms II exhibit. This very green exhibit focuses on “A celebration of all things Floral and Botanical.” They will have works by Pat Berkbigler (sculptures), Ronald Krieger (photography), Linda Layton (oil paintings) and Adrienne Williams (silver and stone jewelry).

Pumpers & Pistons

Your child’s dream is coming true on Saturday! Big trucks, a firetruck pumping a huge fountain of water, rescue dogs, plus much more will make an appearance at the National Museum of Transportation celebration of Pumpers & Pistons/Community Helpers & Armed Forces Day. In addition, artists will be creating works of art during the event as part of the 2022 Plein Air competition.


105.7 The Point’s Pointfest is making a rambunctious return to the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre on May 21. With performances by Papa Roach, Highly Suspect, Halestorm and more, make it a weekend by staying at a nearby hotel and enjoying all the bands with friends on the lawn or up close in the seated section at the amphitheater.

Live Music on the Dock

Live music on the Riverboat Dock at the foot of the towering and iconic Gateway Arch? Count us in! With food and drink from the Paddlewheel Café, Jeff Chapman performs some vivacious tunes while you and friends enjoy the incredible scenery. Admission is free and tables are first come, first serve.
