2015 Fair St. Louis to affect some campus parking

The 35th annual Fair Saint Louis will be held Thursday through Saturday, July 2-4, in Forest Park. This year’s event has once again been relocated from its usual site due to ongoing construction in the area around the Gateway Arch.

In the spirit of community partnership, and given the proximity of the park to campus, Washington University in St. Louis has agreed to sponsor Fair Saint Louis by providing access to several campus parking areas during the fair.

Beginning at 3:30 p.m. July 2, the university will allow Fair Saint Louis to manage parking for fair visitors at a number of campus lots.

Vehicles that are parked in these lots prior to this time will be allowed to remain, but they will not be able to re-enter without paying applicable fair parking fees.

To minimize disruption and provide access to those who may need to drive to campus for university business during the fair, parking will be reserved for university employees and students in the following areas:

  • Danforth University Center (DUC) parking garage
  • South 40 parking lots and garages
  • West Campus upper lot
  • West side of North Campus parking lot
  • All parking facilities serving the Washington University Medical Center (except Lot L).
