    The St. Louis World’s Fare Heritage Festival is an annual event whose mission is to bring together people of the region, showcasing the finest elements of art, music, business, and food while we rediscover the rich heritage of St. Louis. This special event is also designed to help bridge St. Louis County with St. Louis City uniting the region into one community while benefiting local schools and charitable organizations. Forest Park will be the centerpiece of this celebration featuring events and competitions that embrace the history of the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair, highlight the culture of St. Louis today, and look to the future as stronger more unified community. From favorite St. Louis eateries, family activities, and live musical performances to historical exhibitions, live art displays, and a business expo supporting innovative ideas and small business, the World's Fare will be an event that has something for all to enjoy!
