5 Things To Do This Weekend in St. Louis | June 1 – 3
Happy Friday! Here are the five things you won’t want to miss this weekend in St. Louis including Shakespeare Festival: Romeo and Juliet, Webster Arts Fair, Golf the Galleries and more.
Romeo and Juliet | June 1 – 24
Shakespeare Festival’s most anticipated event of the year is the Mainstage production in Forest Park! Shakespeare’s best-known play, Romeo and Juliet, is a deep study in young love and the intersection between politics and the human heart. It was also the first play that Shakespeare Festival–St. Louis ever staged. This year’s production, directed by Elena Araoz, delivers a cutting-edge take on the classic, including a neon-lit set and an original score by Dust Ensemble.
Webster Arts Fair | June 1 – 3
This annual, juried arts fair takes place in the suburb of Webster Groves near Eden Theological Seminary. In addition to artists’ booths, it features live entertainment and a food court. The event is free and open to the public.
IndiHop | June 2
IndiHop is St. Louis’ only community building beer festival in two neighborhoods! Ticket price includes a tasting glass and the opportunity to sample 50 different locally brewed and crafted beers. Sample beer inside twenty five businesses in each neighborhood. Shuttles transport folks between neighborhoods and local musicians entertain at each stop. 50 tastes, 18 bands, 5 shuttles!
Golf the Galleries: Artist-Designed Mini Golf | June 1 – August 12
Tee off at the Sheldon Art Galleries at their new exhibit “Golf the Galleries,” a playable, artist-designed, nine-hole mini golf installation. Designed to be family-friendly and accessible, the course combines the visual arts with the fun of mini golf to create a truly unique experience. The designs range from whimsical streetscapes with unexpected animal inhabitants, an Alice in Wonderland themed tea party and a classic chess conundrum, to immersive structures including a wall of mirrors and a black-light rainbow environment. Enjoy the indoor course in air-conditioned comfort and see how art and play can come together!
Sandcastle Beach at The Magic House | June 1 – June 24
This summer, visitors won’t have to go any farther than The Magic House’s own backyard to experience a day at the beach. With the help of ten truckloads of sand, The Magic House’s backyard is being transformed into a beachfront park, complete with tons of sand, hidden seashells and beach umbrellas.
