St. Louis Earth Day will be Out of this World!

While we’re quite smitten with the cosmos, we also love our own planet, Earth. And, since we are a leading eco-friendly hotel in the St. Louis region, Earth Day is a pretty big deal here at the Moonrise Hotel. And, it’s coming right up!

Each year, St. Louis Earth Day plans amazing events to make the city greener. And this year, they’re expanding the celebration to be two days of fun!

St. Louis Earth Day

Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23

11:00 am – 5:00 pm

The Muny Grounds, Forest Park

Free and Open to the Public | Family & Dog Friendly | Rain or Shine

This year’s event will include two days and two stages of out of this world entertainment. Catch musical and performance acts on the Earth Day Stage and Community Stage. Then visit various vendor booths for educational programming, relax in the Peace Garden, and select a Green Dining Alliance partner or approved vendor for a delicious and earth-friendly snack.

Two free shuttles will help you arrive at the St. Louis Earth Day festivities every 15 minutes starting at 9:30 am and ending at 6:30 pm. One will depart from the St. Louis Community College parking lot and is provided by the Lambert International Airport biodiesel bus and Super Park compressed natural gas bus. The second shuttle will be departing from the Forest Park/DeBaliviere MetroLink station.
