An Iconic Evening

While we have been looking forward to gathering with each of you in celebration of the Gateway Arch and enjoying a delicious meal by Chef Gerard Craft at An Iconic Evening, our bigger responsibility is to our community. Due to ongoing health concerns and CDC recommendations, we will not be moving forward with An Iconic Evening on May 8, 2020.

While this is the right decision for the health and safety of our community, it was not made lightly as An Iconic Evening is the most important fundraising event of the year for the Gateway Arch Park Foundation, and is vital to the Foundation's mission of supporting your Gateway Arch National Park. We understand this is not the outcome any of us were hoping for. While we appreciate all your support, we also acknowledge we are not able to provide an iconic event for you to enjoy this year. We will issue refunds to any guests that request them. Due to the importance of the event in providing critical financial support to achieve our mission, we hope our guests will partner with us during this time and transfer their ticket price into a donation to continue our efforts to support Gateway Arch National Park.   

If you would like a refund, please feel free to contact Gina Wake at or 314-881-3536. Otherwise, we will happily reissue gift letters as a 100% donation of the cost of your ticket to our mission in the weeks to come. 

Thank you for your understanding and your continued support of the Gateway Arch Park Foundation. We look forward to celebrating an Iconic Evening with you in 2021, and we look forward to gathering with you before then to celebrate our beloved Gateway Arch National Park. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Our Sincerest Gratitude For All That YOU Do,

Gateway Arch Park Foundation
