DOWNTOWN KIRKWOOD TOURISM WEEK

Downtown Kirkwood Special Business District recently rolled out the red carpet for guests from the Missouri Main Street organization and the lucky winner of an overnight staycation in Downtown Kirkwood. Many Downtown Kirkwood businesses contributed to the success of these tourism efforts.

Mayor WelcomesThe Missouri Main Street Connection Conference arrived by chartered bus at the Kirkwood Train Station on Wednesday, July 30. Approximately 75 conference attendees came to the ShowMe Kirkwood event for inspiration and ideas to transfer to their communities' preservation-based revitalization efforts. The conference attendees were treated to a buffet provided by Downtown Kirkwood restaurants and specialty food businesses.  Several shops and boutiques extended their hours for main street organization shoppers. And, a guided walking tour of historical commercial and residential properties added to the in-the-field educational experiences of the conference.

Katcation PhotoLooking for a respite from a hectic schedule, Debbie Johnson of Centertown, Missouri entered the KATI-FM (Kat Country) Radio "Katcation" contest.  Debbie, her husband Mike Johnson and their grandsons arrived by Amtrak at the Kirkwood Station on August 1. Debbie won the Amtrak tickets and an overnight stay at Station Plaza as part of the "Katcation" staycation prize package.  The contest was promoted on the radio station in mid-Missouri as part of Downtown Kirkwood's advertising program. Several Downtown Kirkwood businesses added special offers to the prize package. Prizes included tickets to The Magic House, a commemorative charm bracelet from James Durbin Jewelry Design, breakfast at Spencer's Grill, dinner at Kirkwood Station Brewery, several discounts from retail stores and a guided walking tour. Following the trip, Debbie Johnson wrote to Downtown Kirkwood Executive Director Donna Poe, "We are so entirely pleased with our Kirkwood experience and thank you so much for providing us with the opportunity to experience your lovely town." Johnson also said that she can't wait until their return trip and will recommend a visit to Kirkwood to their family and friends.

Downtown Kirkwood Special Business District staff coordinated both of the tourism activities with support from Amtrak and its Missouri River Runner line. The Downtown Kirkwood organization is supported by its member businesses and property owners. Downtown Kirkwood Special Business District works to elevate and promote business by cultivating cultural, social and economic opportunities for the membership that enhance the community and position Downtown Kirkwood as a regional destination.
