The St. Louis Stompers perform at 2009's Whitaker Music Festival. - MISSOURI BOTANICAL GARDEN

If there is a better summer date night in St. Louis than the Whitaker Music Festival, we don't know about it. The series, held on the grounds of the Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard, 314-577-9400), has just announced its 2012 lineup. It is once again dense with excellent local talent: Marquise Knox, Teresajenee, Hamiet Bluiett and Ryan Spearman, to name a few. The full schedule, which includes shows on every Wednesday from May 30 to July 25, is below.

Admission is free after 5 p.m. Music starts at 7:30, and they stop letting people in at 9. Get there early if you want to get anywhere near the stage, but the garden's PA system extends well into the surrounding fields and walkways. Picnics are encouraged -- you can pack your own or buy the materials inside.
