Located at Lagoon Drive, St. Louis, MO, 63112 / Cake artist: Fair Saint Louis

 

Art Hill and the area surrounding the Grand Basin in Forest Park became the new home for Fair Saint Louis in 2014. While the fair was originally held at Forest Park, it had been at the Arch grounds (on Jefferson Memorial Expansion Park) for several years. Due to the renovations that were going on at the Arch throughout 2014, it proved to be a wise choice for the fair organizers to move it back to Forest Park. It had proved to be a success, and it was very fitting since it was the same year as the city’s 250th birthday. Bonnie Raitt, The Band Perry and Matt Nathanson were among the performers in 2014, and even Tino Wallenda (of the famous Flying Wallendas) walked across a tightrope above the Grand Basin!
