Soulard Farmer's Market Plaza will again play host to the rockin’-est gathering on the Soulard calendar. The Soulard Summer Concert Series is held on one special Saturday of each month from May to August. For this event, the Plaza is transformed from a gathering spot for shoppers into a music festival grounds, welcoming neighbors and visitors alike—for free! The series is in its 8th year of showcasing St. Louis’ best talent, with fans flanking the stage in camping chairs sampling picnic fare. Feel free to bring your own snacks—or pick some up at a Soulard restaurant or grocery. Drag your cooler or purchase beer and wine from a Soulard non-profit partner, like the American Legion BKZ Post. We thank the multiple sponsors who put on this event—especially the Soulard Business Association and Mardi Gras, Inc. We give a special nod to Cathy Weldon who shepherded this project for its first half-decade. The series is produced by the Soulard Restoration Group’s Concert Crew, which is a subcommittee of the Fundraising Committee, and is led by Christopher Schwarz.
