Fair Saint Louis Returns to the Arch in 2018

September 15, 2017

FSL-(1).jpgIt’s baaaaaaack!

Fair Saint Louis, one of the largest free Fourth of July celebrations in the region, will return to the Gateway Arch park grounds in 2018.

Since 1981, Fair Saint Louis has been a staple at the Gateway Arch, bringing together hundreds of thousands of people to celebrate our nation’s independence underneath the shadow of our nation’s tallest manmade monument. But due to the CityArchRiver construction project that has been taking place at the Arch grounds, the Fair had relocated Forest Park for the past four years. But now, it’s time for it to come home.

As with years past, the 2018 Fair will feature an incredible amount of fun – from delicious food and drinks, to chart-topping musical entertainment and family friendly activities.  A Fair fan-favorite, the air show, will also return next year. And who can forget the stunning, nationally recognized fireworks show framed by the Gateway Arch? That’ll be back, too!

Mark your calendars for July 4, 6 & 7, and we will see you at the Arch for Fair Saint Louis!
