Fair Saint Louis

301 Prospect Avenue
Saint Louis, MO 63110


About us:

Since 1981, the Fair Saint Louis Foundation (formerly the Veiled Prophet Fair Foundation) in partnership with the City of St. Louis and the National Park Service has hosted a spectacular celebration featuring live music, educational activities, air shows and spectacular fireworks over the Fourth of July weekend.

The name Fair Saint Louis acknowledges that this free event is produced by Saint Louisans as a gift for Saint Louisans and their guests from all over the world.

Recognized as "America's Biggest Birthday Party," this community-focused and family-friendly event is held under the majestic Gateway Arch on the grounds of the 90-acre Jefferson National Expansion Memorial.  With expansive views of the mighty Mississippi River, Fair Saint Louis is an ideal setting to bring friends and families together to celebrate our Nation's independence.

Following the patriotic celebration, the party continues throughout the month of July (on the 12th/13th and 19th/20th) with the Celebrate St. Louis Summer Concerts.
