In the interests of attracting visitors and increasing the exposure for Water Street, the Water Street District Business Association (WSDBA) Events Committee is discussing a one-day "Barbeque/Beer Fest." Four to six local barbeque restaurants would be invited to hold booths. Additional booths would be made available to other vendors and there would be entertainment. A printed event program would give every business an opportunity to place an ad and offer specials to entice visitors to return in the future.
The date might coincide with and have an "October Fest" theme. At this point, the concept/date are not set in stone and are subject to change.
As business owners and managers on Water Street, your opinions and input are a crucial part of this discussion.
- Would you be in favor of an event like this?
- If so, what additional suggestions do you have?
