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 Saturday 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.
