Faust Olden Days of Summer pioneer festival returns to Faust Park in 2014. This is a fun-filled and educational event for kids as they will learn about life in the late 1800s and early 1900s while also enjoying modern-day activities as well.

During the festival, artisans will be on hand to show visitors the historic arts of blacksmithing, rope making, candle dipping, cornhusk doll making and more. In addition, kids can participate in historic schoolhouse activities, get their faces painted, take a hayride or ride on the St. Louis Carousel.

Admission is $10 per child in advance or $15 on the day of the event. Parents are admitted for free with a child’s paid admission.
