Visitors Bureau Launches Marketing Funding Program
If you are organizing a nonprofit festival in Charlottesville or Albemarle County, you can apply for money to help market your event. The Charlottesville Albemarle Convention and Visitors Bureau has launched its nonprofit tourism marketing funding program.
The new process will be handled directly through the visitors bureau and organizations approved under the program will have money to promote their event from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015.
"We want to see what you are going to be able to do to attract out-of-area visitors, especially in the Richmond, Tidewater and our primary market - the Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia market to bring those people down," said Kurt Burkhart, CACVB executive director.
The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. on November 15.
