Independence Day and STL250 converge on Forest Park for America's Biggest Birthday Party featuring Gavin DeGraw. The grounds that once hosted the 1904 World's Fair will once again welcome fairgoers from near and far.
Thanks to the generous support of presenting sponsor Anheuser-Busch InBev, platinum sponsors Edward Jones, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and Nestle Purina, all Fair Saint Louis shows will be presented to the community for free and will be open to all ages.
In 2003, Gavin DeGraw burst onto the scene with his platinum debut, Chariot, which yielded the No. 1 Top 40 smash, “I Don’t Want to Be,” and the hit singles “Follow Through” and “Chariot.” That success was followed by 2008’s “In Love with a Girl” from DeGraw’s self-titled release, which debuted at No. 1 on the digital sales chart and at No. 7 on Billboard’s album chart.
Now a Grammy nominated artist for his recent work on “We Both Know,” the song he co-wrote with Colbie Caillat for the 2013 film, “Safe Haven,” DeGraw will treat fans to a nationwide summer tour with singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson and will open a number of dates for legendary artist Billy Joel.
