Published

on

Visit Vicksburg is accepting applications for its 2022 Tourism Grant Program. This program assists festivals, events, attractions and organizations that impact tourism in Warren County.

Visit Vicksburg’s mission is to encourage and promote tourism for the Vicksburg-Warren County area as well as to sell and market the attractions and experiences of Vicksburg as a premier destination for overnight visitation.

Eligible applicants for funding include an organization, event or project whose objective is to promote Vicksburg’s tourism industry to out-of-town visitors by generating overnight travel and economic stimulus to the city. The target audience should be outside the immediate Vicksburg area (over 50- mile radius or out-of-state).

The program calls for requests for funds to be submitted by November 24, 2021 for events that fall within the Visit Vicksburg fiscal year (January 1, 2022 – December 31, 2022).

Applications and guidelines can be found at www.visitvicksburg.com/locals.
