Winter Fireworks 3 Cassidycopyright

Downtown Kirkwood Winter Fireworks Festival is December 27

The Downtown Kirkwood Winter Fireworks Festival returns this year and is scheduled for Saturday, December 27 in downtown Kirkwood. Before the fireworks display, local musical group Project 324 will perform at Station Plaza and dancers from West County Swing Dance Club, U Can Dance Studio and Downtown Kirkwood's Lucille Rapp Dance Studio will also perform at Station Plaza. Entertainment at Station Plaza will take place on two stages from 5-6:30 p.m. 

Kirkwood Mayor Arthur McDonnell will make brief remarks prior to the fireworks, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. The display will be launched from the parking lot at Kirkwood City Hall, located at 139 S. Kirkwood Road.

Downtown Kirkwood businesses are looking forward to the festival. Many merchants will have sales and specials on the festival day. Previous to the display or following the display, attendees can enjoy dinner at one of the many local restaurants. Everything from fine dining to a quick meal is available within walking distance. 

"Unfavorable Weather Date" is Sunday, December 28 at the same time and place. Ice, heavy snow or windy conditions could cause the event to be postponed. For weather-related event information, check here or phone for special event information at (314) 822-0084, ext. 5. 

Public safety is the Kirkwood Police and Fire Departments' number one goal so, due to the large volume of pedestrian traffic anticipated, a detour route will be in place. The following streets will be closed: a portion of Kirkwood Road, from Argonne to W. Madison; W. Madison will be closed as well as the 100 block of E. Argonne, and a portion of the 100 block of W. Argonne. Northbound traffic on Kirkwood Road will be diverted to Taylor Ave. and southbound to Clay Ave. until spectators have dispersed.

Expect delays in the area after the fireworks display.

Due to a private party, the Kirkwood Train Station will be closed to the public during the event. Parking will be available in public lots, as well as the Station Plaza garages. 

The Festival is underwritten by private donations. They include Des Peres Hospital; First Church of Christ Scientist; Adam's Place; BRiC Partnership, LLC; Riggs Construction & Design; Hardy Washington Jr., State Farm Insurance Agent; Billy G's Kirkwood, Spencer's Grill, Kirkwood Station Restaurant & Brewing Co.; Gaffner Realty; Simmons First National Bank; Barb & Jim Byerly; and Barbara & Art McDonnell.

The Winter Fireworks Festival is coordinated by Downtown Kirkwood Special Business District with support from the City of Kirkwood, Kirkwood Parks & Recreation and event sponsors.  The downtown Kirkwood organization serves business and property owners in downtown Kirkwood through marketing, public area enhancements and administration of Kirkwood Farmers' Market.
