14 St. Louis Events to Put on Your Summer 2017 Bucket List


By Paul Friswold and Daniel Hill

Summer in St. Louis is hot, humid and lasts for months. That leaves you with two choices: You can either hole up in your air-conditioned bunker, making the occasional mad dash to your car for a post-sunset Ted Drewes run, or you can embrace the sweat and the mosquitos and live your life to the fullest. Well, maybe not the fullest. But you can definitely get outside and mingle with the other sweaty people — it won't cost much. Each of the twenty concerts, festivals and crawls on this list will set you back $10 or less.

And don't worry about missing out if you choose the "carpe diem" route. We have it on good authority: Ted Drewes will still be there when you need it.
