Welcome to the Taste of Black St. Louis newly hosted at City Foundry STL which sits along the I-64 interstate on Forest Park Avenue and is at the center of Midtown and near the Grand Center area of St. Louis.

In year two years our popular family festival has attracted 23,000 attendees, showcased over 100 food, retail, and informational vendors, and garnered thousands of dollars in gross sales supporting our participating small businesses. 

Our festivals have been featured on Fox 2 with Kim Hudson, radio stations 95.5, 104.1, and in Sauce, Feast, and Riverfront Times magazines.


We believe in keeping our marketplaces affordable allowing for micro-businesses to re-invest in themselves and support their families. It’s our mission to provide festival opportunities through accessibility, affordability, and sustainability.

After all, we live here - we know our audience and what’s happening in our great city! We offer small businesses the perfect portal right into the hearts and tummies of local audiences year after year.
