Each year Fair Saint Louis looks forward to bringing our community together for one of the best (and FREE) Fourth of July celebrations in the country! While the global pandemic certainly changed our Fourth of July plans, it didn’t dampen our spirits. We quickly pivoted and established Fair Saint Louis Gives Back and Fair Saint Louis @Home – presented by Enterprise!

With traditional Fair Saint Louis celebrations canceled due to the global pandemic, the Foundation set out to make a bigger impact in the community and say thanks to those who have kept St. Louis safe and healthy during this difficult time. Joining forces with partners and sponsors of Fair Saint Louis as well as the City of St. Louis, the Foundation was proud to present Fair Saint Louis Gives Back, which took place in May and June of 2020 and included meal and personal protective equipment (PPE) donation events.

With the global pandemic drastically changing the live music and public gathering landscapes, the Fair Saint Louis team created an engaging way to bring the Fair to the community, working around the clock to plan, film, and produce Fair Saint Louis @Home presented by Enterprise.


Fair Saint Louis truly embodies the “Spirit of St. Louis” and we look forward to returning under the Gateway Arch in 2021 for the 40th Fair Saint Louis celebration!

America’s Biggest Birthday Party is celebrating four decades of Fourth of July traditions on July 2nd, 3rd, and 4th at the Gateway Arch National Park.

Enjoy three packed days of family-friendly activities, our world-renowned air show, chart-topping entertainment, and of course, the dazzling fireworks over the Mississippi River.

Full programming details, including the entertainment lineup for the Fair’s evening free concerts, will be announced in 2021.

We value the health and safety of our community and are taking the necessary precautions in planning Fair Saint Louis 2021.

We are hard at work planning and look forward to sharing programming details in 2021!
