Is Your Community Festival or Event Listed with Explore Minnesota?
Release Date: Jun 25, 2013
Festivals and events that draw visitors to your community can be publicized free of charge through Explore Minnesota Tourism, so make sure your event is included (check exploreminnesota.com to see if it has already been submitted). Submitted events are part of ExploreMinnesota.com, the state’s travel website, which receives 3.6 million visits annually. These listings are also used by our travel counselors to assist customers asking about events. Explore Minnesota also sends a popular weekly events report via e-mail to more than 10,000 subscribers, including the traveling public and media, with a sampling of festivals events and activities taking place throughout the state on upcoming weekends. In order to be considered for this weekly report, events must already be listed with Explore Minnesota. Providing event information to Explore Minnesota is a great way to get the word out about your event, and it is free!
Communities and event organizers submit their event listings online using Explore Minnesota Tourism's “Tourism Manager” feature. If you already use our Tourism Manager, please continue to add and/or update existing listings. If you have never used our Tourism Manager, it's easy! Just go to http://www.exploreminnesota.com/submitANewListing.aspx and fill out the brief form; you will then be sent a password so you can enter your events information. If you have questions about this process, call April at 651-757-1855, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
