This year’s Lebanon Route 66 Festival, presented by Heritage Bank of the Ozarks, will be June 18-19 with Friday evening’s activities in downtown Lebanon and Saturday’s daytime events at Route 66-themed Boswell Park. The festival then moves to the iconic Munger Moss Motel for a celebration of its 75th anniversary and the 50th anniversary of its ownership by Ramona and the late Bob Lehman. This will be Lebanon’s 14th Route 66 Festival since 2001.

The Lebanon Downtown Business District is host of the Friday-evening events. The Route 66 Society, in partnership with the Lebanon Parks and Recreation and Tourism departments, is host of the Saturday events.

This year’s theme ties in with the Missouri Bicentennial: “200 Years of Missouri, 95 Years of Route 66.”
