Where can you see some of the best visual art all in one place? The St. Louis Art Fair, of course!  

    Just head to the heart of Clayton September 8th -10th. Consistently ranked as one of the top art fairs in the country, this annual event has become a summertime tradition for many. And this year, the St. Louis Art Fair celebrates its 30th anniversary!

    To mark the milestone, expect another spectacular event. Favorite artists from years past will return, along with the debut of many more. 

    With over 190 tents to explore, visitors are sure to find inspiration – and maybe even the perfect piece of art to take home. 

    Diverse artists from across the country (and beyond) cover the categories of painting, wood, glass, photography, jewelry, metalwork, ceramics, sculpture, mixed media, and more. There is something for everyone at the St. Louis Art Fair.

    In addition to the professional artists, the St. Louis Art Fair shines a light on some exceptional up-and-coming talent. Don’t miss these emerging artists and their works.

    You can learn about many artists in advance by visiting HEC Media’s Meet the Artists Youtube page.

    As always, the event is family-friendly! The younger set delights in the hands-on arts experiences at the Children’s Creative Castle. Kids twelve and under craft their masterpieces and then take them home.

    The performing arts are also present at the St. Louis Art Fair. Singers, dancers, and more grace the multiple stages all weekend. Enjoy the festive entertainment while exploring the impeccable food and drink options. Area restaurants bring their best!

    And be sure to visit HEC Media’s Spotlight tent. An ongoing sponsor of the St. Louis Art Fair, HEC is the area’s leading producer of arts and education programming. Stop by to learn more about your favorite artists at the fair and HEC Media at the corner of Forsyth & Meramec Ave.

    As participating artist Kate Harrold said, “I want people to be engaged. It doesn’t have to be my story that they see, I just want them to connect to it.”
