This festival transforms into the Globe Theater, bringing you the greatest works of The Bard, presented by talented local performers. It's lawn seating only, so bring your blankets, chairs, and picnic baskets and enjoy this free performance with the family. Arrive early and enjoy the bonus Green Show with traditional dancers, jugglers, and musicians will entertain the crowds while the stage is set.

Circus Flora

Who said the circus is dead? Enjoy some good old-fashioned fun at Circus Flora's famous 1-ringed show. Catch animal acts, acrobats, jugglers, trick rider, and so much more at the circus - and it's air-conditioned tent - remains one of the most popular summertime events in St. Louis.

Fair St. Louis

Celebrate the nation's birthday with nationally recognized musical acts, and more, at this open-air celebration that is free to all comers. Come early and sample the dozens of food and beverage options, and stay late for one of the most impressive fireworks displays in the country.

Festival of Nations

Drop by Tower Grove Park in late August and see it transformed into St. Louis' own league of nations. Take in folk art demonstrations, food, and music from around the world, cultural and educational exhibits and, of course, shopping.

Big Muddy Blues Festival

If you need the perfect event to wrap up your summer, then the Big Muddy Blues Festival happening at Laclede's Landing on Labor Day is the perfect party. National and local bands perform on multiple stages during a two-day music fest that will have you dancing your way out of summer and into the fall.
