The Whitaker Music Festival is a beloved summer tradition that presents free Wednesday evening concerts under the stars. The festival is funded by the Whitaker Foundation, which supports St. Louis arts and parks to promote common heritage, celebrate diversity and encourage vitality within the community.
New this year, free advance reservations are required for admission to the Whitaker Music Festival (maximum of 10 admissions per reservation). Free reservations will be available three weeks prior to the first concert date (June 1) on May 11. Reservations for each subsequent performance will be available one week before the concert date on the preceding Thursday morning.
Free reservations will be available first to Garden members beginning at 10 a.m. and to the general public beginning at noon on each weekly on-sale date. Reservations will remain available until the concert start time or until capacity of 5,000 reservations is reached. Please secure your reservations well in advance to guarantee entry.
Free entry for those with advance reservations begins at 5 p.m. on each performance evening (last entry at 8:15 p.m.). Live music begins at 7 p.m. Free admission to the Doris I. Schnuck Children’s Garden is available from 5–7 p.m. (advance reservations not required for Children's Garden entry).
