Whether you’re into music, art, or theater, the Grand Center Arts District is the place to be to unlock your inner creativity.
Grand Center hosts over 1,500 arts festivals and events every year, including National Dance Week in Grand Center (April), the Grand Theater Crawl (July), the Tennessee Williams Festival (April), Arts & Faith in St. Louis (September), and the KDHX Folk and Roots Festival (September). There’s a beautiful venue for everything here in Grand Center.
Powell Hall hosts the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. The Fabulous Fox Theatre has history premiering movies and now serves as a restored performing arts center that has hosted stage shows and iconic music acts like Shawn Mendes, J. Cole, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Mariah Carey, Bob Dylan, and countless others. If visual art is your thing, you won’t want to miss the Contemporary Art Museum of St. Louis. And that’s just a few of the venues the neighborhood boasts.
With so much history to see in Midtown, the neighborhood was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. Whether you’re just visiting St. Louis or living in the area, don’t miss this beautiful neighborhood.
