Visit Longmont disburses grants to promote tourism
Last Updated: 15:17 April 29, 2014
The grant funds totaled $25,000, according to a release from Visit Longmont.
Applicants and events receiving funding for 2014 are:
Boulder County Fair: Livestock Show and Rodeo
Bicycle Longmont: G'Knight Ride
InterCambio de Comunidades: Culture Jam
Longmont Council for the Arts: Longmont Studio Tour
Longmont Downtown Development Authority: Festival on Main
Lefthand Brewing Co.: Leftapalooza
American Diabetes Association: Tour de Cure
ColoRODans: Rod Festival
Longmont Museum: Planes, Trains and Automobiles Exhibit
The tourism grant program was established in 2008 after the inception of Visit Longmont, following the passage of the lodgers' tax. Guidelines require that events seeking grant money should attract patrons from outside a 30-mile radius of Longmont and that the events should reflect a "significant" impact on tourism spending in Longmont.
Applications for the 2015 Tourism Grant will be available in December from Visit Longmont.
