Fair Saint Louis


Since 1981 St. Louisans have celebrated freedom at Fair Saint Louis (formerly the VP Fair), a three-day festival loaded with a star-spangled array of entertainment, vendors and family fun. Planned events this year in Forest Park include a salute to our troops, a model boat regatta in the Grand Basin and a huge zip line ($10 a ride), as well as musical performances by Morris Day and the Time, Blondie, Melissa Etheridge and Kool & the Gang. Fireworks close out each evening at 10 p.m. New this year is the S.T.E.A.M. exhibit (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math), which offers science-related experiences such as make-your-own 3-D glasses and stomp rocket launches. Fair Saint Louis is open 5 to 10:30 p.m. Thursday, and noon to 10:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (July 2 through 4). Call 314-434-3434 or visit for more information. Admission is free.
Thu., July 2, 5-10:30 p.m.; Fri., July 3, 12-10:30 p.m.; Sat., July 4, 12-10:30 p.m., 2015
