Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum

Sips, Souls, and Strolls: Steamship History We are excited to announce the return of our popular Sips, Souls, and Strolls events! Enjoy a pleasant evening of light refreshments, beautiful surroundings, and a leisurely tour at Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum. From 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Fridays, May 13, 20, and 27, 2022, you can explore Steamboat life. Captains, pilots, owners, and some unfortunate souls lost in a steamboat accident make up our tour. The river's history runs right through St. Louis, yet little is known of this era. Bellefontaine Cemetery's volunteer guides will shed light on these stories during a one-hour walking tour. Wine, beer, soft drinks, and light appetizers will be served. Walking terrain is mild with a mixture of hard and soft surfaces. Please wear appropriate outdoor walking attire. This is a rain or shine event except in the case of extreme lightning. Space is limited and reservations are required. Purchase your tickets today! Tickets are $10 Your donation helps our nonprofit cover refreshments and marketing expenses.
