Fair St. Louis organizers have announced plans to return the 36th annual event to Forest Park for 2016.  The Independence Day celebration will be held Saturday July 2 through Monday July 4, 2016, at Art Hill, due to continued construction on the Arch grounds in downtown St. Louis.

This will be the third year at Forest Park since moving from the riverfront due to the renovation of the Arch grounds.  About 275-thousand people attended the event last year that included music, food booths, a kid’s area, and fireworks displays each night.  Musical acts and entertainment for 2016 will be announced at a later date.
