On the First Friday of every month throughout Springfield's downtown, we turn into the best of the big cities! In our galleries, artists studios, and other venues, you can view the latest sculpture, pottery, blown glass, photography, paintings, and much more. There is live music, sidewalk vendors and artists everywhere you look. You'll think you are in New York's Soho!

MSU Events

MSU Parents Weekends, Homecoming, Graduations, and Sporting Events. We could not be any closer to the Missouri State University campus! Walnut Street Inn guests can enjoy a hearty breakfast before watching the homecoming parade from our west lawn. Park your car in our lot when you check-in and walk to the stadium. You will be snug in your room before other fans even get their cars on the street.

Drury Events

Drury University Parents Weekends, Homecoming, Graduations, and Sporting Events. We are the closest B&B to Drury University and less than a five-minute drive to the campus. Book the whole house and bring in your family and friends to celebrate your child's graduation.

We are currently doing Murder Mystery Weekends for any group that can take all 12 rooms. If you have a corporate group or just a group of friends that can fill the house, we can make it a weekend to remember! Call us for more information.
