The 138th America's Birthday Parade
"America the Beautiful"
A St. Louis tradition since 1878, America’s Birthday Parade is an incredible spectacle of elaborate floats, choreographed dances and live performances – including some of the country’s most talented marching bands. Parading through the streets of downtown St. Louis in the shadow of America’s tallest monument, the Gateway Arch, this classic summer event is not to be missed. With our theme of “America the Beautiful,” this is a celebration of our city, our people, our community and our country… from sea to shining sea. Mark your calendars to join us on Saturday, July 3 as we celebrate America’s 245th birthday!
