The Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation (MCEDC) supports countywide tourism efforts and is currently requesting event schedules for the fall and winter seasons. Events must be located within Montgomery County.
As members with IllinoiSouth Tourism Bureau, MCEDC is able to market events across 22 counties in Illinois, spanning from the St. Louis area to Indiana. Events such as fundraisers, parish picnics or weekly events (such as farmer’s markets, concerts, wine tastings, etc.) are not eligible for submission through IllinoiSouth. Priority will be given to events that are multi-day and can be expected to draw visitors from outside a 50-mile radius.
All events must be submitted by April 20 to Valerie Belusko with MCEDC at 217-827-3200 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the following information for event submission: name, address, date, time, description, contact person, contact number and website if available. For additional marketing, please email pictures from prior year events. Pictures must have photographer approval for publication and marketing.
Events fitting the above criteria will be submitted to IllinoiSouth Tourism for publication in their Tourism Times publications. Events will also be highlighted on Facebook at MCEDC-Montgomery County Economic Development Corporation and on the website at www.montgomerycountyillinois.org/tourism.
