St. Louis Festival for the Poor

Feb 10, 2023 & Feb 11, 2023 - click here for time schedule - English

We are excited to announce our annual Festival for the Poor will take place this upcoming Feb. 10 -11, 2023!

The festival, a St. Louis tradition, donates 100% of its profits to charitable organizations like Camillus House, A Safe Haven for Newborns, Goodwill, Patches, St. Ann’s Mission, Amor en Accion and many more in South Florida. 

Join us for a wonderful family-oriented weekend which will kick off on Friday night at 6 p.m. with a full-course dinner, drinks, live entertainment, and rides for the kids.

It will continue Saturday morning with our 5K Run/Walk, a Spring Bazaar with over 40 vendors, a Car Show, and continuous rides, game booths, giveaways, live music, raffles and a silent auction. 

Ride bracelets, Friday night dinner, 5K Run/Walk registration, car show registration, and T-shirts are already on sale on our Festival webpage: and through scanning the QR codes below.

Every year we have an overage of Festival T-shirts and the logistics and distribution are a challenge. To improve this, we have decided to choose one of our recipients, LA 6 Foundation, to sell the Festival T-shirt. A new charity will be chosen every other year.

None of this would be possible without your support and generosity! There are many opportunities to become a sponsor for the festival by promoting your business and at the same time helping the neediest in our community with a tax deductible donation.

For more information on the various levels of sponsorship and to sign up, you may also visit our Festival webpage: and through scanning the QR codes below.

With much enthusiasm we have been working very hard to make this festival an exciting and fun-filled time for our families, while also giving to those who need our help the most.
