“Kewpie Dolls” and “Kewpiesta” part of Branson’s Ozark Mountain Spring

An article entitled, “Kewpiesta celebrates Rose O’Neill and her Kewpies,” published on February 1 in the Branson Courier, reports that the 2009 Kewpiesta will be held April 22-26 at the Ramada Inn Conference Center in Branson, Missouri. It goes on to say that “Kewpiesta” is all about Rose O’Neill and the iconic comic like “Kewpies” she created.

Although it has been held just about annually in Branson since its inception in 1967, because of Branson’s closeness to “Bonniebrook,” the O’Neill family homestead, “Kewpiesta” is one of the many events involved with Branson’s new spring event, “Ozark Mountain Spring.” Ozark Mountain Spring is a new umbrella event being used to launch Branson’s new season and will run from March 1 until May 31. It will feature many different events, some new and some, like “Kewpiesta,” that have endured the test of time. Click here for Branson Tourism Center’s complete list of Ozark Mountain Spring Events.

Excerpts from the article:

“Kewpiesta” is an annual commemoration of the “Kewpie” and its creator Rose O’Neill, which has become an Ozarks tradition since its initial beginning in 1967. It is a combination of Rose O’Neill and Kewpie events that is unmatched anywhere else in the world…

Those coming to Kewpiesta or simply interested in Rose O’Neill or Kewpies might want to plan to visit “Bonniebrook”… a National Historic Site, located about 10 minutes north of Branson on Highway 65 and features the Kewpie Museum containing hundreds of Kewpies, original O’Neill artworks and documents and artifacts about her life and work.
