The fair will feature fine artists and craftspeople from Missouri and 15 other states. Their artwork includes paintings, ceramics, fine jewelry, sculptures and stunning wearables. Shoppers and browsers will find contemporary, traditional and whimsical art at a range of prices. The Webster Arts Fair is nationally ranked and features works of quality, originality and affordability.
The beautiful campus of Eden Seminary at the corner of Lockwood and Bompart in Webster Groves is the site for the Fair. Booths will be spaced for easy access and comfortable distancing. Parking is free along Bompart and Lockwood. Lots are available at Webster University and Nerinx Hall. Handicapped parking will be clearly marked on the Eden campus at the fairgrounds.
"We are thrilled to bring the Webster Arts Fair back to the community and support artists who have been hit hard by the last two years of the pandemic. We are ready for beautiful art, a glass of wine and amazing live music," says Jenny Donaldson, Webster Arts executive director. " We were wowed by the artists who applied and were juried into the Fair, and look forward to sharing these artists and vendors with our visitors."
In addition to the beautiful art, the Fair features food, music and free family activities. Art demonstrations will be happening all weekend, and area bands will play the soundtrack to this fun weekend. Food trucks will offer snacks from Bayou Seasoning and Catering, Mission Taco Joint, Sedara Sweets and Tivanov Catering. Beer and wine will be available.

Circus Flora is going underground! The caves beneath St Louis have fascinated the city’s residents for generations. Each cave has its own story, its own mystery, its own secrets. In “The Quest for the Innkeeper’s Cask,” Circus Flora’s troupe seeks an ancient relic, rumored to have mystical powers, and believed to be somewhere beneath the city’s streets. But it seems that someone does not want the Cask to be found—the closer it is, the more obstacles and boobytraps seem to be in the way.
Acrobats, daredevils, aerialists, comedians and more tell this wondrous story in a way that only Circus Flora can. Remind your family that adventure and excitement are everywhere, even underneath our city’s streets!
Tickets start at $10!

The French Heritage Festival celebrates 300 years of French culture in North America from Quebec to New Orleans and recognizes Ste. Genevieve’s status as having the greatest concentration of authentic French Colonial architecture that exists in North America. Early birds can enjoy a guided Audubon Bird Walk at 7am. Opening ceremonies are conducted on the steps of the Church of Ste. Genevieve at 10:30am, where “Marie Antionette” and “King Louis XVI” will make an appearance. French carols by the Ste. Genevieve Chanteurs, a salute by the Ste. Genevieve Milice, a traditional benediction, and a Grand Promenade through the historic district will follow. Throughout the day, festival activities center around the downtown including music, dancing, storytelling, skill demonstrations by re-enactors, children’s activities, French Colonial architectural tours, beer/wine and other refreshments. Live music concerts featuring traditional Creole music and fiddle playing by Creole Stomp and Dennis Stroughmatt et L’Esprit Creole are a major highlight of the event. In the evening, the Felix Valle State Historic Site will host La Veillee, a demonstration of traditional French dancing.
Sponsored by the Foundation for Restoration of Ste Genevieve.
