Best Week Ever
The Downtown Excelsior Partnership is having the Best Week Ever after celebrating their 15th year as an organization! This group is responsible for most of the festivals and events happening in town throughout the year. From beautifying the streets or providing support for local business, DEP is an essential part of the positive changes happening downtown.
Coming Soon

The Museum will be having their annual Rummage Sale from
October 19-23! They are currently seeking donations to the sale and volunteers to help in managing!

If interested in volunteering, contact Deb Foster at 816-630-0101.
