Celebrate St. Peters 2016
It’s hard to believe that it was six years ago that we hosted our first Celebrate St. Peters event at 370 Lakeside Park—time flies, especially when you’re having fun! Every year keeps getting bigger and better. Celebrate St. Peters 2016 on Friday, Sept. 16, and Saturday, Sept. 17, will be no different.
And, again, all of the entertainment is FREE! Just be sure to bring your blanket or lawn chair for the Main Stage concerts.
With good weather (cross your fingers!), we expect more than 10,000 people in the park on Saturday night when headliner Randy Bachman takes the Main Stage, presented by KSHE 95. If you enjoyed last year’s headliner, Burton Cummings, you’re sure to enjoy Bachman. The two rock stars performed together in the legendary rock band The Guess Who, producing huge hits like “American Woman,” “No Time,” “These Eyes,” and “No Sugar Tonight.” Then, Randy Bachman started another great rock band, Bachman-Turner Overdrive (BTO), and released more smash hits like “Takin’ Care of Business,” “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet,” and “Let It Ride.”
Rogers and Nienhaus, who have performed with The Byrds and other classic rock and country performers, will open for Bachman. And, don’t forget fireworks over the lake right before Bachman takes the stage!
Saturday night will be a fantastic end to a great weekend of entertainment, but by no means will it be the only great music that you can hear at Celebrate St. Peters. Come out Friday night and catch two great FREE sets of classic rock to kick off the weekend when Firefall and Orleans take the Main Stage, sponsored by Mid Rivers Newsmagazine and The Big 550 KTRS.
Once again this year, our Celebrate Stage will feature entertainment on Saturday afternoon under the Corporate Pavilion at 370 Lakeside Park. Acoustik Element will entertain beginning at noon, followed by the rock and R&B music of Butch Wax and the Hollywoods with Theo Peoples from 3-6 p.m. Folks, be sure to come out early Saturday and enjoy fun music at this scenic venue along the lake!
As always, we’ll have plenty to do for the entire family at Celebrate St. Peters. The carnival rides at our celebration are fun and affordable. The Home Depot will let kids build a free project at its Kids Workshop. And, come out to the Community News Family Stage near the carnival on Saturday for some great family entertainment with music, magic, theater and mad science! Both kids and parents have a great time at these shows.
The festival also has a lot of great vendors, whether you’re looking for tasty food or beverages, want to play games, or if you like shopping for unique items and crafts. We’ll have more than 60 vendors again this year!
Parking should be at a premium at 370 Lakeside Park, especially on Saturday evening. We’ve created as many parking spots as possible and will have free shuttle buses taking people to and from their cars throughout the event.
But, if you want to make sure that you can park your car near the event grounds, we’re giving you another chance to buy a reserved parking pass this year. People with the pass will be allowed to come and go to a convenient, reserved parking area throughout the event. These parking passes are on sale at City Hall and the Rec-Plex. You must buy them in advance—no parking passes will be sold at the event.
