The 1904 World’s Fair Society has monthly meetings with programs on various topics relating to the Fair.

It has always been a tradition of the organization to have a meeting on April 30th to celebrate “opening day”, (the day the fair opened, April 30th,1904), and to have a “closing day” banquet on December 1st (the day the fair closed, December 1st 1904) .

Most meetings have a drawing for an attendance prize for members attending the meeting. You may register every time you attend a meeting at the reception table near the door.  Attending more meetings will give you more opportunities to win.  Attendance prizes will vary. Often they will match the subject of the meeting.  You must be present to win.

The meetings are always well attended with people very knowledgeable about the fair. Please feel free to attend and ask questions. Visitors are always welcome.

  • Picnic (if circumstances permit)

    August 23, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
    Kirkwood Park, 111 S Geyer Rd, Kirkwood, MO 63122, USA

    The Society will celebrate summertime with our annual picnic.  We will meet at the Scout Shelter Pavilion in Kirkwood park.  The Society will provide hot dogs, iced tea and ice cream, and members are asked to bring a side dish or dessert to share. 

    At this year’s picnic, we’ll feature a great group game, and have a “World’s Fair Memorabilia Auction”.  Members can bring a few Fair items to be auctioned (a minimum price can be set). And, we will also auction a few items from the Von Dunn collection of 1904 Fair memorabilia, which was donated to the Society in 2013.  Some items will be sold via a silent auction,and some items may be selected to be sold in a ‘live’ auction, going to the highest bidder.  A portion of the auction proceeds will be donated to the Society. Start surveying your collections for possible items you’d like to sell!
