Description:

The St. Louis Carousel at Faust Park will be the location of the Colorado 2018 Event!  The St. Louis Carousel, with its 60 hand carved horses and four deer, is located within a climate-controlled building inside beautiful Faust Park in West St. Louis County. A not for profit corporation, the Faust Cultural Heritage Foundation, was formed to raise funds and other forms of support for the Carousel’s continual maintenance and restoration.

The St. Louis Carousel is an original 1920s carousel from the Dentzel Co. of Philadelphia. The carousel was installed at the St. Louis Highlands Amusement Park in 1929. After a fire in 1963 destroyed the park, the carousel was moved to Sylvan Springs Park and operated there until 1979. The St. Louis County Historic Buildings commission and the Faust Park Foundation raised funds to restore the Carousel, bringing it to Faust Park.

The evening will include free carousel rides and a catered dinner with plenty of time to catch up with old friends and make new ones!  This is event is sponsored by a number of our Associate members - thank you.  Please register to attend so that we have the right amount of food!  CGFOA will provide one 56 passenger bus to transport folks.  It will depart the Convention Center at 6:40 and will depart Faust Park at 10:00 PM to return to the Convention Center.   You must pre-register for the bus in order to ride it.    If you do not want to travel to the park at 6:40 or want to return earlier than 10:00 PM, transportation will be on your own.  Faust Park is about 22 miles down I-64 from the Convention Center Complex.  The Opening Reception ends at 6:30 and our event starts at 7:00.  We look forward to seeing you at the St. Louis Carousel!
