If Fair St. Louis got you in the mood for music outdoors, we've got a list for you. Below you'll find more than 100 shows happening outside in St. Louis this summer — all of them completely free. From Chesterfield to Belleville and a whole bunch of parks and civic sites in-between, these concerts are a great way to get some fresh air, make new friends and catch a good show.

Events are subject to change without notice, so please confirm all details with the event's host before formalizing your plan. You might also want to inquire about their alcohol policy before you pack your cooler.
