What to Do in St. Louis This Weekend: Nov. 16-18

If you already have plans for this weekend, cancel them. They are not as good as the activities we suggest below. 

If you don’t know what to do in St. Louis this weekend, then you’re welcome, here are a bunch of fun things to do.

St. Louis doesn’t always feel like a big city, but there is always something fun and exciting to do on the weekends. Whether it’s shopping or catching a show, you have no reason to be bored in St. Louis.

1. Holiday Festival at the Warehouse

Love antiquing? Want to find a unique piece for your home before the holidays? Rand Rosenthal’s Warehouse on Manchester is the place to go. He is having one of his special events this weekend, and since his warehouse is open so rarely, it’s going to be a treat.

The Holiday Festival at the Warehouse is going to be open from Friday to Sunday, so be sure to check out the event times and make a plan to visit.

2. Aladdin at the Fabulous Fox

Experience “a whole new world” in a production of Aladdin at the Fabulous Fox! This is perfect for families and older adults who grew up watching the beloved movie. Broadway musicals aren’t something you want to miss. 

The production is in St. Louis for only a short time, so make a plan to see it this weekend.

3. Winterfest

This weekend is the beginning of a beautiful tradition in St. Louis: Winterfest! 

Ice skate with your sweetie or your family with the Arch in view. Admission is free! It’s the perfect winter destination, especially since the Arch grounds were newly renovated, and the city is covered in a layer of snow.

4. Garden Glow at the Botanical Garden

Another classic St. Louis wintry event is opening this weekend: Garden Glow!

Experience the Missouri Botanical Garden in a completely different way. It’s absolutely covered in over one million (yes, a million!)  beautiful, twinkling lights. It’s the perfect photo opportunity if you’re still looking for Christmas card ideas. 

Garden Glow is perfect for the family and for date night, so add it to your weekend plans.

5. Graphic Revolution: American Prints 1960 to Now

If it’s too cold for you to be outside at Garden Glow or ice skating downtown, head over to Forest Park and see the Saint Louis Art Museum’s newest exhibition on American Prints!

Except for special exhibits like this one, the museum is free for everyone, so even if you aren’t interested in graphic prints from 1960 to now, I highly recommend spending a few hours there anyway. The museum has a large collection, and there’s something for everyone to enjoy and appreciate.
