ABOUT

ST. LOUIS AT ITS FINEST

Since 1981, the Fair St. Louis Foundation (formerly the Veiled Prophet Fair Foundation)- in partnership with the City of St. Louis- 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.

Fair St. Louis Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) organization.

MAKE MEMORIES TO LAST A LIFETIME

With Fair Saint Louis making a return to Forest Park July 2, 3 and 4, our goal is to once again deliver an experience that will be talked about for years to come.

From stunning fireworks over the Grand Basin, popular music by big-name stars and tasty food in a family-friendly atmosphere, we are working hard to ensure that Fair Saint Louis 2016 will surpass all expectations.

Don't miss this chance to make Independence Day memories that you won't soon forget.

"Forest Park is one of the greatest outdoor spaces in the country. We are looking forward to showing off the park during one of the City's signature events."

-Mayor Francis Slay

A GIFT FROM ST. LOUISANS TO THEIR NEIGHBORS AND GUESTS

What began with the Veiled Prophet Organization back in 1981 continues today as an ongoing commitment to the St. Louis region and its citizens.

The Fair Saint Louis Foundation contributes to the community in many forms.

Gifts to the region

The Fair St. Louis Foundation has helped to underwrite monumental gifts, including:

  • — Lighting of the Eads Bridge
  • — Mississippi River Overlook Stage
  • — Mile-long Riverfront Promenade
  • — Grand Staircases beneath the Arch in partnership with the National Park Service
  • — Irrigation system in Forest Park
  • — Fallen Officer Memorial located in the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department Headquarters

COMMUNITY VENDOR PROGRAM

Each year, the Fair St. Louis Foundation community vendor program provides local not-for-profit organizations the opportunity to raise funds for their respective causes.

By providing volunteers during Fair Saint Louis and the Celebrate St. Louis Summer Concerts, these organizations share in the profits from beverage sales. Not only does this contribute vital funds to support their community programs, it also helps raise awareness of the positive impact they are making within the community.

The contributions have totaled in the millions for the collective organizations who participate as vendors with Fair Saint Louis.
