On March 10, the City of Wilsonville’s Parks and Recreation Advisory Board awarded $25,000 in grants to support local tourism events and programs with funding from the City’s Tourism Grant Program.
Four local nonprofit organizations were awarded grants to produce major community events during the 2016 tourism season:
• Wilsonville Celebration Days for the Fun in the Park festival: $9,250• Wilsonville Arts & Culture Council for the Wilsonville Festival of Arts: $5,250• Wilsonville Kiwanis Club for the Kids Fun Run: $5,250• Wilsonville Rotary Club for the Summer Concert Series: $5,250
The Tourism Grant Program is funded by City hotel/motel tax revenues to support events and programs that promote tourism and community activities that draw both overnight and daytime visitors, which helps to support local businesses.
