County Tourism Office Provides Free Publicity for Summer Events
The calendar still reads January, but the Oswego County Promotion and Tourism Office is compiling a list of events for the 2008 “Summer in Oswego County” calendar of events.
Organizations that submit their information by Jan. 28 will receive a free listing in the county's tourism calendar.
“The calendar contains hundreds of activities, including festivals, concerts, fishing derbies, children's programs and other events, that take place throughout our county between April and October,” said David Turner, director of the Department of Community Development, Tourism and Planning.
The county tourism office will distribute 25,000 brochures at travel and vacation shows, chambers of commerce, NYS Thruway and Gateway Information Centers, and at local businesses and county offices. The brochure will also be posted on the county government Web site at www.oswegocounty.com.
To request an entry form, call Mary Ellen Barbeau at the Division of Promotion and Tourism, weekdays at 349-8322 or 1-800-596-3200, ext. 8322, or .
