Kewpiesta is a celebration of the life of Rose O’Neill, world famous author, artist, sculptor, illustrator and creator of the beloved Kewpie doll! Admired the world over, the success of the Kewpies allowed Rose to mingle with artists and royalty, travel and own homes in New York and Italy before returning to the family’s Ozarks home of Bonniebrook.

Kewpiesta was born in 1967 when a group of Kewpie collectors met in Branson to celebrate their shared interest in everything Kewpie! The first meeting has evolved into a yearly, 4-day convention with fans coming from all across the United States, Europe and Asia. It includes an Affiliate Get Together, a trade show where authentic and reproductions of Rose’s work is sold, an auction, the International Rose O’Neill Club (IROC)’s business meeting, and is capped by a formal dinner.
