Fair Saint Louis Gives Back
Fair Saint Louis is proud to introduce Fair Saint Louis Gives Back, an initiative to support the St. Louis community, show gratitude for our local healthcare and essential workers, and provide the region a Fourth of July celebration they can enjoy from the comforts of their own homes.
Presented by the Fair St. Louis Foundation, partners and sponsors of Fair Saint Louis, and in collaboration with the City of St. Louis, Fair Saint Louis Gives Back features meal donation events to St. Louis essential workers, a personal protective equipment (PPE) donation event benefiting the St. Louis community, and the Fair Saint Louis @Home virtual Fourth of July celebration.
MEAL DONATIONS TO ESSENTIAL WORKERS
As a thank you to St. Louis essential workers for all they do to ensure our community is healthy and safe during this crucial time, Fair Saint Louis volunteers will work alongside longtime Fair partners to safely box and distribute free meals to local VA healthcare and essential workers, City of St. Louis essential workers and the St. Louis Fire Department.

Healthcare and essential workers at John Cochran Veterans Hospital and St. Louis VA Medical Center – Jefferson Barracks

PPE DONATION EVENT
To provide those in need with protective face coverings, the Fair St. Louis Foundation worked with the City of St. Louis to identify those in need of these resources.
In early June, the Fair St. Louis Foundation will donate 20,000 3-ply face masks to the St. Louis Metropolitan Clergy Coalition to benefit churches in underserved communities in North St. Louis, South St. Louis and downtown. The coalition will distribute the face coverings to clergy, staff, and members of the congregation.
FAIR SAINT LOUIS @HOME
Just because our annual Fair Saint Louis event isn’t happening at Gateway Arch National Park this year, doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate our community and our nation’s independence! We’re bringing Fair Saint Louis to you – virtually – with Fair Saint Louis @Home on Saturday, July 4.
Starting at 10 a.m., viewers can tune in to Fair Saint Louis’ Facebook page (facebook.com/fairsaintlouis) or fairsaintlouis.org for a virtual Fourth of July celebration featuring entertainment by local musicians — Chingy, The Little Dylan Band, Alexandra Kay, Jordan Sutter, and Jakes Leg — with performances by Fair Saint Louis’ favorites, a salute to our service members and essential workers, and much more!
