 Happy 200th Birthday Missouri!

Missouri Main Street Connection is excited to present the Missouri Main Street Bicentennial Passport to help you explore the great state of Missouri in 2021. Communities across the state are joining in the celebration! These celebrations signify the strength and vitality of both community and statewide pride. Through the Main Street America movement, Missouri Main Street Connection empowers community revitalization by honoring, supporting and sustaining Missouri’s historic commercial districts and downtowns. The Missouri Bicentennial is a time to celebrate the rich heritage and culture of this great state and explore Missouri’s historic districts and downtowns. We encourage you to post photos and videos on social media of your Missouri Bicentennial adventures with #Missouri2021. Select photos will be featured on Missouri Main Street Connection’s website, social media, and other promotional materials.
