St. Louis World’s Fare Heritage Festival

August 21, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 10:00 pm


The 2016 St. Louis World’s Fare Heritage Festival will be a three day format and will be taking place at the World’s Fair Pavilion in Forest Park on August 19, 20, and 21. 

The St. Louis World’s Fare Board of Directors in collaboration with the city of Saint Louis and the Saint Louis Parks Department are thrilled to announce the return of the St. Louis World’s Fare Heritage Festival in Forest Park at the World’s Fair Pavilion. In an effort to unite the people of our region this unique festival showcases many diverse elements of St Louis history, present, and the future in one of the most beautiful public parks in the United States.  The FREE admission 3-day festival has become known to feature a wide variety of what makes St. Louis great.  In the event’s first 2 years it has attracted over 25,000 people to experience the finest chefs, musicians, artists, restaurants, businesses, and kid’s activities the city has to offer. All of this with a historic twist anchored by the 1904 World’s Fair Society. 

The public is encouraged to sample a wide range of scrumptious eats from over 20 restaurants and food trucks at the Culinary Pike, sit back and listen to some of the best Jazz, Blues, Rock and some other eclectic styles of music the area offers, view some eye popping artwork from some of the city’s finest artists, let your kids let loose at some of the many excellent kids activities on the Kids Island, learn the amazing history of the 1904 World’s Fair and the City of Saint Louis, and take advantage of your chance to interact and learn more about some of the more innovative businesses around the city.
