St. Charles Festivals

Throughout the year, St. Charles hosts festivals, historic reenactments, plays, and other special events that attract thousands — most set against the history-filled backdrop of Main Street or the scenic Missouri River in Frontier Park. Some of the larger festivals include Heritage Days, an authentic reenactment of Lewis & Clark's encampment in 1804, and the Festival of the Little Hills, voted "Best Craft Fair in the Midwest" in 2011 by Midwest Living magazine. Enhance your visit to St. Charles by planning it around one of these festivals or events.
