Litchfield Tourism Office receives National Endowment for the Arts Grant

The National Endowment for the Arts is awarding the Litchfield Tourism Office a $10,000 grant to support 2021 Public Concerts. The concerts are to be held in conjunction with tourism-sponsored events.

“The National Endowment for the Arts is committed to ensuring all Americans have access to the arts, whether they are in a small or large, rural or urban area,” said Arts Endowment Chairman Mary Anne Carter. “We are proud to support organizations such as the Litchfield Tourism Office that is providing opportunities for more people to experience and engage in the arts in their communities.”

Tourism Coordinator, Sarah Waggoner, stated, “The Litchfield Tourism Office is excited to continue to grow arts and music within the City of Litchfield. We are excited to be a recipient of this grant award from the National Endowment for the Arts. This opportunity will allow citizens and residents to have continued access to live music in 2021.”

The Litchfield Tourism Office is a sub department of the city. The Litchfield Tourism Office focuses on attracting visitors to the City of Litchfield from beyond a 50-mile radius in order to foster economic opportunity.

The Tourism Office helps visitors plan their trips to see Litchfield’s Historic Route 66 Attractions and Lake Lou Yaeger Recreational Area.
