Annual Community Events are a fun way to bring communities together. These events can take many different forms. Some follow strong, traditional values which bring about closeness and a sense of pride to the town, while others may be more unique and can showcase what sets your community apart from the rest! Each type of event your community organizes can be beneficial. Communities hosting Annual Events can lead to an increase in traffic and tourism. This allows small business owners to have the opportunity to shine! Every year, our company proudly assists numerous communities in both Missouri and Illinois with their Annual Events.  A few of the most common Annual Events are listed below:


A festival is one of the most popular style of an annual community event.Festivals tend to be based around live entertainment, food, and art. It is common for a parade to take place and more often than not a theme is prominent.  Mardi Gras, Chili Cookoff, BBQ Bash, and PrideFest all fall under this category.
