Events

There’s something happening here. All the time.

Events in St. Joseph are as unique as we are. From festivals to outdoor concerts and major sporting events, there’s always something happening. Across the city, from season to season, you’ll find events for kids, families and a great night out.

Trails West! Brings Big Names, Local Art

There’s nothing like the setting of seeing a top entertainment name (i.e., Taylor Swift, Kansas, Air Supply, Grand Funk Railroad, and more) on the lawn of beautiful Civic Center Park, surrounded by local art, food and architecture. Each third weekend in August, Trails West!, an arts and music festival, makes St. Joseph a hot spot for guests and locals (up to 30,000). Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, the festival continues to gain national recognition as a top event while also supporting local art events all year. We’re pretty proud of everything Trails West! Means to our community. Join us, along with several thousand of our closest friends, for a weekend you won’t forget.

Holiday Park has been a family favorite in St. Joseph for generations. Santa and his sleigh that used to top the Mead building now fly through Holiday Park, which brings back memories of me as a kid. Driving slowly to see the lights and displays has given our kids an exciting chance to sit in the driver’s lap and honk the horn in the Castle tunnel. Now they stick their head through the sun roof and we have a funnel cake before we go.
