The Main Event Stage is your go-to destination for exciting entertainment all weekend long! Whether it be trying fortune’s favor at the Missouri Lottery’s game shows or stopping by to hear from one of the exciting celebrities who grace the stage, a good time is guaranteed to be had by all. Over the Show’s 30-year history, celebrities from Oprah Winfrey in our first year to Alison Sweeney, Bob Harper, and Molly Ringwald in more recent years have delighted audiences with their behind-the-scenes stories.
The celebrity guest for the Show’s 30th Anniversary will be announced the week of November 1st. You’ll also see stunning fashion shows featuring the latest styles and trends. There’ll be music, fitness demonstrations, unique hair creations, home improvement help and floral ideas for Spring.
The newest workouts, weight-loss techniques, dancing, yoga, women’s self defense, and more will be part of our fitness stage. Professionals from studios all around the St. Louis area will teach attendees about aerobics, zumba, chair yoga, buti yoga, basic barre, gentle fusion, mat pilates, body blast, group blast, Tai Chi, hip hop piloxing, hoola hooping, and country strong. Look for raffle drawings at each presentation.
Whether from The Missouri Pork Association, The Blue Owl and other local restaurants, or some of St. Louis’ fantastic chefs, our Cooking Stage will have 20 scrumptious presentations on food over the three-day weekend. There will be raffle drawings at the stage for each of our contests, with recipe cards distributed to each person at the Cooking Stage to take home. And it’s the fifth year for our “Inspired Chef Competition”, a cook-off where you can be a culinary contender with a chance to win cash and many other prizes.
Adjacent to the Stage is our Cuisine on the Green area, where you will be able to sample food from vendors and purchase food to either take home or eat at the adjacent “Kickback Cafe”. In addition, you can sample four different kinds of beer at our FeBREWery Fest area, located in Cuisine on the Green.
