A car show will be Saturday, October 2 and will include several makes and model cars including low riders.

Quinceañera Fashion Show, a tradition and custom for your women, will be on Sunday, October 3 and will feature local young ladies modeling their beautiful dresses.

One of the Fair’s purposes is to celebrate the common heritage of Hispanic nations particularly because of the rise of the Hispanic population in the greater St. Louis area. The funds raised are used to fund scholarships distributed to college-bound students and underprivileged children.

We invite the entire St. Louis community, both Hispanic and non-Hispanic, to come and share in this festive weekend celebration of fun and fiesta for the whole family. Admission and parking is free.

Safety measures will also be taken to ensure a safe event with masks, hand sanitizer and social distancing.
