Independence Day and STL250 converge on Forest Park for America's Biggest Birthday Party featuring Capital Cities. 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.
Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian, the front men behind the breakout alt-dance group Capital Cities, are a success story that has continued to blossom. The Los Angeles-based act took both the blogosphere and the shores of California by storm with their self-titled, electronic-infused pop rock debut EP, which featured carefully crafted melodies, lead vocals sung in unison, and clever production built partly on a vintage analog synth, the Roland Juno 106.
Today's activities include:
Schnucks Freedom 4 Miler & Family Fun Run, organized and produced in conjunction with the St. Louis Sports Commission
Fair Saint Louis kicks off at noon
Webster University’s Salute to the Troops
Performances by Musiq Soulchild, Capital Cities and The Neighbourhood, leading up to The Fray
