Learn about the Jefferson County Tourism Commission

Listen to Scott Seek, JCTC Board Member discussing the formation and plans for the newly formed Jefferson County Tourism Commission at the 2021 State of the County Address.

The Jefferson County Tourism Commission would like to take this opportunity to thank the Arnold Tourism Commission, Festus Tourism Commission and the Pevely Tourism Commission for their continued support in the start up of the JCTC. We would also like to thank the Jefferson County Growth Association for their continued efforts and support in helping to form the JCTC. This plan has been in the works for many, many years now. A lot of thinking and planning by many JCGA Board Members has gone into this venture which has finally become a reality. We look forward to the road ahead and where we can take it!

Thank You,

Jefferson County Tourism Commission Board Members
