Route 66 Festival

The City of Kirkwood will host its Route 66 Cars and Guitars Festival on June 8, 2024 in downtown Kirkwood.

The festival's theme of "Cars and Guitars" speaks to the rich transportation and music history of the region. Live music and vintage vehicles will anchor this outdoor event.

Festivities Include:

  • Free Live music from six bands, on two outdoor stages (with staggered start times)
  • A vintage car show
  • A Beer Wagon, hosted by local service clubs, serving beer and wine
  • Vendor booths
  • Food and drink from downtown merchants and from area service clubs
  • Carbs & Guitars - Morning Pancake Breakfast sponsored by the Kirkwood Fire Department and Kirkwood Rotary Club


We recommend attendees bring their own lawn chair for the musical performances.

Please No Bicycles, Skateboards, Coolers or Dogs.

Most of Downtown Kirkwood’s numerous stores, locally owned boutiques, and restaurants will be open during the event. Festival activities will be located on North Kirkwood Road and on the two blocks of Jefferson that intersect Kirkwood Road.

Road Closures

These two blocks of Jefferson, between N. Clay and N. Taylor Avenues, as well as Kirkwood Road between Argonne Drive and Adams Avenue, will be closed to vehicular traffic starting early in the morning on June 8.
