The Du Quoin Tourism Commission was incorporated on May 12,1989. A group of business people formed the commission to give a bright future to the community. In 2013 Du Quoin Tourism is involved in their 24th year of working harder than ever towards improving and creating interesting events that will bring visitors into the community.
The Commission, volunteers, and the Garden Club of Du Quoin have worked and continue to work hard on making Main Street a beautiful experience for visitors. The tree lined Main Street, planters of blooming flowers, flower filled Mini Park with a Gazebo, antique street lights all come to life in every season; inviting our visitors to enjoy friendship and warmth while shopping.
Why do we say we are a Secret? So many of our visiting friends tell us that being in Du Quoin is so relaxing, inviting, homey; with wildlife, fishing, hunting and shopping (in town or just a short drive away) there's plenty to do or just do nothing.
