The promotions committee works to brand and market the district and the many wonderful businesses and resources within that district through advertising campaigns, marketing materials, festivals and events.

Our promotions committee works hard to organize FREE community events like the First Sunday Gallery Walk, Turner Street Outdoor Theater and Dickens Village.
