City Nights: Paint the Night Away

July 19

Feeling inspired? Leave your mark on City Museum! The St. Louis attraction invites you to collaborate with local artist Javyn Solomon to create a mural masterpiece using upcycled materials during this 21-plus event. All you have to do is paint by numbers while enjoying food, drinks and tunes from DJ Cassiana. 4 Hands Brewing Co. will also offer samples of its newest product, City Museum Hard Seltzer, to all in attendance.

DMD Block Party

Take a deep dive into the Delmar Maker District at the party of the summer! Anchored by Third Degree Glass Factory, the Delmar Maker District also includes Alpha Brewing Company Distillery, The Fountain on Delmar, MADE for Kids, Steve’s Hot Dogs, Craft Alliance and highly acclaimed restaurants from Ben Poremba. You can explore all that and more at this Third Friday event.

Fiddler on the Roof

July 19 to 25

Often considered one of the top five greatest musicals ever, Fiddler on the Roof returns to The Muny for its 11th production. This multi-award-winning show tells the tale of Tevye, the milkman, who, in 1905, thrives in the traditions of his town of Anatevka. As his daughters question these traditions and the world changes ominously around him, Tevye is challenged to find a new way to learn and to love. Fiddler on the Roof has one of the most illustrious scores ever written for Broadway, and this is your chance to hear it in one of the most iconic theaters in the country.

24th Annual St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase

July 19 to 21 and 26 to 28

Lights, camera, action! The St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase, presented by Cinema St. Louis, screens films written, directed and produced by St. Louis residents as well as films shot in the St. Louis region. During the showcase, audiences can watch a range of films, including narrative features, documentaries and multi-film compilations of fiction, documentary and experimental shorts. Cinema St. Louis aims to create cinematic experiences, such as the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase, that enrich, educate and entertain our community.

For one day only, The Hawthorn will transform into an immersive art gallery featuring original work by top artists from the St. Louis community. Both sessions of Art, Mimosas and Pancakes will boast creativity and music, but the second session is only open to those 18 and older.
