Du Quoin is a happening place.  For decades this town of just over 6000 people has been know across the country for its hospitality and resources.  Ask a NASCAR driver where Du Quoin is, he’ll tell you.  Run into some Airstream campers in California, they’ll tell you about their stay in Du Quoin.  Horse racing, auto racing, cattle roping, rodeo bull riding, sports tournaments, flea markets, shining holiday lights, home shows, NubAbility training, a great State Fair, and more—it all happens in Du Quoin.

It is an honor to serve as Mayor of Du Quoin.  As Mayor it is my task and intent to serve the needs of our residents, guests and visitors.  If you need to know anything about our “doing” town, there are numbers of ways to find an answer.  Call the City Hall, 618-542-3841.  Go to: http://www.duquointourism.org.  Call the Chamber of Commerce at 618-542-9570, or the Tourism Commission at 618-542-8338.  Contact me personally at guyalongi@duquoin.org.  Whether you are a resident or visitor, enjoy Du Quoin
