ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – Planning is well underway for the 35th Annual Fair St. Louis to be held July 2-4, 2015. Details on the location for this beloved event have been finalized. Next year's location for "America's Biggest Birthday Party" is Forest Park. This is the second year in a row that the park will host this event.

This large Independence Day celebration has been going on since 1981. Until last year, the location had always been the Gateway Arch grounds. With the grounds remaining under construction, the Arch is once again not an option for the upcoming Fair St. Louis.

Last year's 34th Fair St. Louis in Forest Park boasts 250,000 in attendance.
