Fair Festivities: Eddie Money, Sammy Hagar Perform

Return to Blog


The fun continues on day two of Fair Saint Louis, and organizers have planned a jammed-packed afternoon for fairgoers. Metro is your safe and convenient way to get to all the festivities and enjoy all of the fun.

The Fair Saint Louis fairgrounds will open to the public at 4 p.m. Make sure to get to Forest Park early to experience all the fun activities planned, such as food sampling on Lagoon Drive and water-ski demonstrations in the Grand Basin by the Lake St. Louis Water Ski Club.

The music kicks off on the Budweiser stage at 5 p.m. with the rock band Cowboy Mouth. Eddie Money keeps the evening going with a performance at 6:30 p.m. St. Louis favorite Sammy Hagar and The Circle featuring Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham and Vic Johnson will close the night at 8 p.m. The Enterprise Rent-A-Car/Edward Jones fireworks show take place at 9:30 p.m.

Take Metro to Fair St. Louis

Park your car at one of our Park-Ride lots and take Metro to see your favorite bands perform. Passengers can park at any of 20 free Park-Ride lots at MetroLink stations in Missouri and Illinois where more than 10,000 free parking spaces are available. Locations with large numbers of free parking spaces include the North Hanley MetroLink Station with 1,700, the Brentwood I-64 Station with 900, Fairview Heights Station with 850, Emerson Park Station with 800 and Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 Station with 800. Please note that the Park-Ride lot at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station will be closed during the fair.

Metro will provide additional MetroLink service on Sunday starting at 6 p.m. until after the fireworks conclude. Fairgoers taking MetroLink are encouraged to use one of two designated stations to access Fair Saint Louis. Both stations are approximately a half-mile from fairground entrances. To minimize wait times and to speed up the process of getting large crowds back home after the fireworks end each night:

  • Blue Line passengers are encouraged to head to the Skinker MetroLink Station
  • Red Line passengers are encouraged to go to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station.


As a reminder, there is no eating, drinking or smoking (including e-cigarettes) allowed on Metro vehicles or on Metro property. For those bringing strollers on the MetroLink, please be prepared to fold them up before boarding the train. Alcohol and firearms are prohibited on Metro vehicles and Metro property, and no alcohol or coolers are allowed at the fair. Pets are not permitted on Metro vehicles, except for service animals.
