Independence Day and STL250 converge on Forest Park for America's Biggest Birthday Party featuring Matt Nathanson. 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.
Based in San Francisco, Matt Nathanson has evolved into one of the most dynamic songwriters and performers on the music scene today. His 2007 album, Some Mad Hope, yielded the smash single “Come on Get Higher,” which has sold two million copies to date. The success of Some Mad Hope also earned Nathanson a coveted spot as a VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist.
Day's activities include:
Three World Record attempts, all sponsored by Post Foods
132nd annual Veiled Prophet Parade steps off at 10 a.m.
Fair Saint Louis kicks‐off at noon
