- Rally on Clark II is the 2nd outdoor music festival to takeover the Busch II infield at Ballpark Village. Several local DJs will be spinning on stage all day long, while guests enjoy food trucks, a bounce house, beach ball drops, and much more fun!

- PixelPop Festival – a celebration of video games and game development – takes over the Saint Louis Science Center this Saturday and Sunday. You can sample panels and seminars on game design that examine everything from voice acting to the psychology used to hook players’ imaginations. Oh, and you can also play 35 brand-new games and give feedback to their designers. There will be tournaments for the competitive as well as analog games (tabletop, card and board games). Registration opens at 9:30 a.m. Saturday and at 11 a.m. Sunday. Single-day admission is $15 and two-day passes are $25.
- The West End Players Guild kicks off their season with Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia, directed by Ellie Schwetye. Stoppard spins simultaneous tales set two centuries apart in the same room of an English manor. In the play about mathematics, thermodynamics, determinism, Lord Byron, “the carnal embrace” and hermits the stories are bittersweet and the characters are endearing. It’s a lot to ask of a play to link those concepts and people together, so Stoppard uses human beings as channels for the ideas set simultaneously in 1809 and the present. This play runs Thurs.-Sat., 8 p.m. & Sun., 2 p.m. Through Oct. 9
