Event description


Join Heritage Ohio in Wadsworth on April 25th for the 2nd Revitalization Series Workshop of 2019. The focus of this workshop will be on promotions. Though Main Street programs do many of the critical tasks through design, economic vitality, and organization, the promotions committee is, in general, responsible for activating the downtown through events. Events are what everyone knows Main Streets do, it is one of the highly visible aspects of what we do and can sometimes be the only thing that many in our communities know about us.

Get ready for a day packed with tools to help you succeed in this area. Find out how partnerships can enhance your events, learn how to create unique experiences, tackle social media to improve marketing efforts, tell your story through video, and create the one thing Main Street can't survive without, a sustainable volunteer culture. As always, you will also have the opportunity to explore this Main Street community and grab a bite to eat at a local establishment.
