This year has been exciting for St. Louis. It’s the 250th birthday of the city and the 110th anniversary of the 1904 World’s Fair in Forest Park.
The 1st Annual St. Louis World’s Fare Heritage Festival and Games will capture the spirit of the 1904 World’s Fair in Forest Park this weekend.
The celebration will kick off Friday at 4 p.m. and go until 10 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, the festival will run from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The free celebration will take place near the Grand Basin in Forest Park (map). Metro customers can take MetroLink to the Forest Park – DeBaliviere MetroLink Station. From there, they can walk over to the Grand Basin like they did during Fair Saint Louis this year. Or they can board the #3 Forest Park Trolley. (Note: The #3 Forest Park Trolley ends service at 5 p.m.) Passengers who wish use to use MetroBus in Forest Park after 5 p.m. may hop on the #90 Hampton, which services key locations in and around Forest Park.
The three-day event will feature art exhibits on Art Hill, live band competitions, 30 local restaurants (and 10 dessert booths), a head-to-head chef challenge, a dance competition, activities for children and educational displays.
