Bring your neighbors, friends and family to check out the reboot of the riverfront.

The whole place is almost two feet higher, complete with new benches, lights, bike racks and trees! The will be the first of many community events in the new space, part of the CityArchRiver project and the Mississippi Greenway. From free concerts to swap meets, sidewalk vendors to 5Ks, this is a vibrant destination for residents and visitors alike.

The historic riverfront is an important part of the story of the St. Louis region. It’s time to reconnect to with our roots and create new ways for the riverfront to be part of our future.

Grab a seat at the table, meet someone new and break some break on the banks of our mighty Mississippi River, beneath our iconic Gateway Arch!
