Festival Tourism = Arts & Culture Economic Impact
In many communities, festivals and special events are vital to the bottom line of many businesses and the local economy. The economies of these towns depend on the revenue, employment and income that these events might bring. Festivals and special events are growing forms of tourism, especially in rural areas struggling to revitalize local economies.
Festivals and events are attractions that have drawing power and staying power. This means they not only bring in new visitors, but they help keep visitors in the area longer.
Festivals allow even the smallest communities to capitalize on what makes them unique. While visitors are important sources of income and tax revenue, some festivals are organized simply to add quality of life and enjoyment to a community.
