Fireworks in the Lou 2017

This year Fair St. Louis will take place in Forest Park July 2nd-4th. With FREE – you heard it people FREE – concerts by artists such as AKON, EVE 6 and Jake Owen,  you and your friends and family can sing along to some fantastic tunes. Other features include a rock climbing wall, face painting, inflatables, zip lines, a human slingshot and more, there is truly something for everyone. But enough about the fair, you came here for info about our favorite Fourth of July pastime: fireworks!


The Place to Be

Fair St. Louis will host fireworks on Sunday July 2nd at 9:35pm, Monday July 3rd at 10pm and Tuesday July 4th at 9:35 pm. The staff at the Moonrise Hotel invites you all to join us on the rooftop to get an up close and personal experience of the fireworks this year! On Sunday and Monday we will open at our regular time of 5pm. However, on our glorious Independence Day we will open at 3pm. We will not be offering tickets in advance so first come, first serve. The little ones are also welcome to join on Tuesday, but anyone under 21 will be asked to leave once the fireworks are over.

We hope to see you this weekend to celebrate Independence Day! If you would like to see a list of other places in the metro area that will light up the night sky, Explore St. Louis offers a list of events and their locations. Have fun and be safe out there!
