Fair Saint Louis Announces Partnership with Arch Apparel

Fair Saint Louis announced a partnership with Arch Apparel, unveiling a line of branded T-shirts and hats designed in the clothing retailer’s signature modern style now available for purchase. Fair Saint Louis will be held July 4, 5 & 6 at Gateway Arch National Park.

“Fair Saint Louis and Arch Apparel both celebrate all things St. Louis, so we’ve teamed up to offer Fair Saint Louis gear to honor our great city,” said Julie Donnelly, sponsorship and marketing director at the Fair St. Louis Foundation. “We’ve had so much interest in Fair Saint Louis-branded merchandise over the years. Arch Apparel has become an outlet for St. Louisans to express their love of the Lou, and we are so excited to see fairgoers rock this merchandise under the Arch at Fair Saint Louis 2019.”

“Fair Saint Louis is such an iconic celebration in our city. It has been around for so long and draws SO many St. Louisans together to celebrate both the 4th of July and Saint Louis,” said Aaron Park, founder of Arch Apparel. “We are honored to get to be a part of such an iconic St. Louis tradition. To get to celebrate St. Louis in the way that we do – we think that’s pretty cool.”


Fair Saint Louis-branded merchandise includes a soft tri-blend T-shirt featuring a patriotic iteration of the Fair’s iconic circular logo and the flag of the City of St. Louis, with the Gateway Arch prominently displayed. Shirts are available in unisex sizes XS-XXXL in white and heather gray for $25. In addition to T-shirts, shoppers can sport a navy hat featuring Arch Apparel’s classic City Circle design surrounded by stars on the front and “Fair Saint Louis” embroidered on the back. Adult hats are available in one size with an adjustable strap for $20.

All merchandise is available for purchase at archapparel.comfairsaintlouis.org or at the Arch Apparel store, located at 2335 S. Hanley Road, St. Louis, MO 63144.
