Festival of Little Hills | August 18 – 20

One of the best craft fairs in the St. Louis area is the Festival of the Little Hills in St. Charles. Historic Main Street and Frontier Park are filled with booths selling everything from jewelry and art, to kids clothes and holiday decorations. More than 300 vendors from 30 states set up shop during the three day event. Shopping isn’t the only attraction though. There’s live music, kids activities and some of the best festival food around.

St. Lou Fringe | August 17 – 26

St Lou Fringe Festival is a 2 week immersion in cutting edge performing arts, connecting brave artists with bold audiences. Imagine drama, dance, comedy, music, slam/spoken word, performance art, fashion, vaudeville, circus arts – all concentrated within several city blocks in an explosive pressure cooker of artistic expression. On any given night, there are half-a-dozen shows with street performers roaming the festival grounds. Patrons can vote for their favorite shows but will never be able to see everything the festival offers. St Lou Fringe will blossom a developing local neighborhood into a creative hotspot destination and will expose patrons to new art forms, and the limitless world of creative possibility.
