The Festus Tourism Commission is made up of 5 volunteer members of the Festus City Limit Community to disperse revenue generated by the 5% Tourism Tax approved by Festus voters in 2012. Notices of the meetings are published in The Leader and on the website. View what details are needed and how to get on the agenda to make a presentation to the Tourism Commission (PDF). City staff is responsible for the financial distribution and oversight of the sponsorship or grant use.
