LouFest is one of our favorite annual events and it returns to Forest Park this weekend, September 9-10! The centrally located Festival & Parking Plaza will be home base for this year's festivities, hosting over 30 bands across 3 stages. In addition to the music, LouFest attendees can browse art markets, grab local eats at the Nosh Pit, entertain the kiddos at the LouKidz area, go for a ride in a hot air balloon and more! You can find even more details about LouFest weekend on their website.
All this excitement will affect circulation throughout the Park, so whether you are coming to LouFest or visiting one of the other amazing destinations Forest Park has to offer, please take note of various road closures before you plan your trip. Biking and MetroLink are always great alternatives to driving on busy weekends like this one! Metro will even be operating a special LouFest shuttle. For $3 round-trip, you can ride the shuttles from the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station directly to the two-day music festival to avoid traffic congestion and road closures!
