Spend A Spectacular Independence Day On The Moon

No city knows how to celebrate the Fourth of July better than St. Louis! Our annual multiple day celebration, Fair St. Louis, always includes fabulous live music, fun activities, delicious food, otherworldly fireworks shows, and best of all? It’s always FREE. This year’s party is extra special, though, because it marks the grand opening of the new Gateway Arch National Park!

The Fair runs from July 3 – 7 and will feature an air show, parade, fireworks and live music from the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and artists like Jason Derulo. But what to do when you’ve had your fill of festival fun? Blast over to The Moonrise, of course! We’re celebrating the Fourth in style this year, with three nights of rooftop celebration.

Catch The Fireworks From The Moonrise Rooftop

Take your Independence Day to new heights at the best boutique hotel in St. Louis! Although the fireworks won’t be in Forest Park this year, you can still enjoy a truly stellar view of the shows from our Rooftop Terrace Bar. We’ll be serving up classic American barbecue standards, from pulled pork to ribs to potato salad and more, paired with delightful drink specials. Check out our full special Fourth of July rooftop menu.

The celebrations will occur on the rooftop on:

  • July 4 – Rooftop opens 3 pm, rooftop Fourth of July menu served from 3 – 9 pm.
  • July 6 – Rooftop opens 5 pm, rooftop Fourth of July menu served from 5 – 9 pm.
  • July 7 – Rooftop opens 3 pm, rooftop Fourth of July menu served from 3 – 9 pm.

Fireworks shows are scheduled to blast off each night on July 4, 6 and 7 at 9:45 pm. Guests under 21 are welcome during the shows but will have to leave the rooftop within 10 minutes after the fireworks have ended. The rooftop typically fills to capacity by 8:30 pm; spots cannot be reserved and are first come, first serve, so be sure to plan ahead of time! This is one hotel party you won’t want to miss.

Make this Fourth of July truly exceptional and book a room at the Moonrise, so you can be close to all the action!
