Event Support

Events Help Promote Community

Special events are an important foundation of all communities. They serve to build a sense of community, reveal and enhance the local character, and create and develop a sense of place by highlighting what’s unique and special about the area — all while creating memories and fostering attachment and belonging. Besides: they are just plain fun!

Scope of Work

The dual mission of the OBT is to increase tourism traffic while boosting retail sales. Whether you’re planning a simple event like a public potluck or book club or a larger-scale effort like a mass festival, the OBT wants all events to be successful. We encourage all event planners to coordinate with us so we can help support your event.

Something for Everyone

All special events are welcome to take advantage of several avenues of support from the OBT, as well as engage a number of local and regional resources available to help with event planning and execution. The Event Partnership Programs document describes how the OBT stands ready to support a variety of event types.
