Saint Louis Art Fair in downtown Clayton photo by Richard Maury

The Saint Louis Art Fair, downtown Clayton’s biggest event of the year—and one of the top events of its kind in the country—is making its return in September.

Live entertainment will fill three stages, and Pleasures of the Palate will once again offer samplings from some of the area’s top dining establishments. For young fairgoers, the Creative Castle children’s area will feature interactive and hands-on experiences.

The fair takes place in downtown Clayton between Maryland and Carondelet avenues.

This year’s presenting sponsor, Centene, is providing free parking in the Centene Plaza Parking Garage on Forsyth Boulevard throughout the weekend.
