About Us

The Excelsior Springs Area Cultural Guild is nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring the arts. We encourage and promote appreciation for the fine arts through education and community events. Our goal of the annual events – Mardi Gras Murdery Mystery, Gatsby Days and more – is to raise funds to provide scholarships for area students pursuing an education in the arts.

Get Involved:

There are a variety of opportunities to help with the Cultural Guild! Like to plan? Prefer to be behind the scenes? Want to greet at events? Work with students and others in the community who love the arts?
