Come on over and visit us!
While we always love guests to East Prairie, we especially enjoy our visitors that drop by during the Sweet Corn Festival and Tour de Corn. We want you to have a fun time and feel at home from the moment you see that EP water tower!
In the coming weeks, we'll provide even more information we hope you find useful for planning your visit to EP, including dining and lodging options, general city information and, or course, details about some of our great EP area businesses. Please stay tuned!

Washington (the ferris wheel on the map) and those streets will be blocked on Friday and Saturday.
