Get on over to the Grove for St. Louis’ most eclectic urban street festival, Grove Fest. The fourth annual version of the event will be held between 4 p.m. and midnight Saturday, Sept. 19 on Manchester Avenue between Sarah and Boyle.

This year’s Grove Fest will showcase St. Louis’ hottest bands and DJs, the Art Dimensions Village featuring live art demonstrations and a live auction, a community mural painting, street performers, the Zombie Squad, Arch Rival Roller Girls, the Future Legend Skaters, and a Freakers Ball starring the one and only Clownvis Presley. You’ll also get to sample food and drink from the Grove’s top eateries and clubs.

The party continues after the event during Late Night in the Grove, with shuttle service to the Grove’s nitespots up and down Manchester Avenue.

“Our team of event organizers, businesses, and community partners are working to create a unique, regional celebration that will attract thousands from around the city,” says Chip Schloss, Grove Fest president and owner of Atomic Cowboy. “We are very excited about this year’s activities and attractions.”
