BerettaFest 2022 St. Louis, MO. June 22nd-26th
Here is the itinerary for this year's BerettaFest!
It's back! BerettaFest has been held in St. Louis before but that was many moons ago. It has been proposed by multiple people in the last few years but this year we’re making it happen! So here, have a look at what we've got lined up for BerettaFest 2022, St. Louis!
Taco Night & Event Check In
Take your coat off and stay a while. Get comfy, you’ll be here all weekend! Be sure to find the registration tent and get signed in, grab your goodies bags and get any questions you may have answered.
Everyone will roll into town and get comfortable before making their way to wherever tacos are going down. My hotel room, the parking lot, the dining area in the hotel… if you cook them, they will come. This is an annual tradition started many years ago so if you show up early, grab a taco! The remainder of the evening will be settling in and catching up with your Beretta buddies.
Event Check In will be available throughout the whole weekend, so don’t worry if you can’t arrive for Taco Night! Call, text, or FB Message Amy Biagioni-Chmura and let us know when you arrive! We will let you know where the group is so you can join the fun!
Free Time in Downtown St. Louis
There is a ton to do at the Riverfront District and Union Station! Everyone will be free to attend the attractions they desire. Pick from a ton of activities such as the St. Louis Aquarium, The Wheel, The Carousel, Mini Golf, Rope Course, an old school Soda Fountain, and more!
Other activities and attractions you may want to check out include…
Gateway Arch Tour & Riverboat Cruise
The Arch is close to our hotel and only a short drive to make the visit. Did you know you can go inside and up to the top of this bad boy?? Entry into the Arch is free and there is plenty to see, however, a trip to the top is the way to go! Have you ever ridden inside of a dryer? Well now you can! We can pair this with a riverboat tour for an afternoon and evening of fun and sightseeing.

Jefferson Barracks was a U.S. Army post from 1826 to 1946, now turned park and located right on the Mississippi. There are many museums on-site. The museum buildings were part of the ordnance section built in the 1850s and now contain exhibits, educational programs, and special events are presented.
Group Cruise on the Great River Road National Scenic Byway
The Great River Road stretches so far it can take over 36 hours to drive the entire thing through ten different states! Don’t worry; we’ll stick to a much smaller, local piece of the road to cruise. The road will take us through some small towns right off the river for some great regional experiences.
Pack it up and hit the road!
Possibly have a group breakfast at a local eatery?
