Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board announces the roster of events for their first-ever Arts Montco Week. The festivities will highlight Montgomery County, Pennsylvania’s over 200 arts and culture venues, which normally represent $100 million in positive economic impact. The county, which has hosted such prestigious entertainment organizations like Cirque du Soleil, Big Apple Circus, and the Philadelphia Orchestra, will roll out the red carpet to visitors for Arts Montco Week, Sept. 17-26, 2021.
“Tourism is certainly powerful in Montgomery County, PA,” said VFTCB President & CEO Mike Bowman. “Arts and culture can change us, shape us, and have a positive impact on all of our lives. We need that now more than ever, and we know that our suburbs are going to come out of this strong.”
The brand new festival is free for arts and culture venues to participate, with no requirements for in-person or virtual programming, and will feature a website, blog, video, public relations, and social campaign.
The goal of the initiative is to help reinvigorate Montgomery County tourism’s normally robust $1.65 billion positive economic impact – including more than 25,000 jobs. The county is home to live music venues, award-winning playhouses, historic movie theaters, amazing architecture, museums and art galleries, and some of the finest gardens and arboretums in the country.
