Inspired by R. Crosby Kemper, III, the idea of a free, outdoor Shakespeare festival began in 1997. In 2001 Chairman of the Board Marvin Moskowitz, first Managing Director Lana Pepper and a visionary board of civic leaders produced the first annual free Shakespeare Festival in Forest Park. Since the initial two-week run and first season attendance of 33,000, the Festival has grown to a two-month celebration of the Bard throughout the city with annual attendance over 60,000. Averaging over 3,000 audience members nightly, the Festival has become St. Louis’ premier classical theater and a main cultural attraction for the city. ts. Rick Dildine served as the Festival’s first Executive Director from 2009 – 2014 and oversaw its growth beyond the Park to the schools and streets of St. Louis. In 2014, the Festival entertained its 640,000th patron in Forest Park and 270,000th student. Our legacy is seen in the tens of thousands of patrons and students who have participated in our work. Year-round we are engaging our citizens in the schools, in the streets and in the park. With a commitment to community, conversation and collaboration, our theme of unexpected theatre drives our creative and producing choices. Each season hundreds of supporters come together to produce Shakespeare Festival St. Louis. Unlike other theaters in the region, SFSTL depends almost entirely on the contributions of individuals, foundations, corporations and public institutions for support. We do not follow a traditional model; we believe we are creating the next model. We’re still writing our story. We’re trailblazers; we’re making the path together. Join us!

Missouri's Civil War Trails is a tourism and fulfillment program that highlights Civil War sites that exist in abundance across the state. The Gray Ghosts Trail, covering central and western Missouri, is inspired Richard S. Brownlee's classic study of the Civil War in Missouri: "Gray Ghosts of the Confederacy, Guerrilla Warfare in the West, 1861-1865." The U.S. Grant Trail, in eastern Missouri, focuses on places in the state that defined the early Civil War career of the future President and Lieutenant General. As seen along both trails, Missouri has a rich Civil War history. The most Northern state where slavery was permitted by law, it was inevitable that War in Missouri would be especially brutal. And so it was. Missouri witnessed the greatest number of battles and engagements - more than 1,000 - of any place except Virginia and Tennessee.
