PROMOTIONS:   

The purpose of the Promotions Committee is to promote Okeechobee as a destination for shopping, dining, arts and culture.  The Promotions Committee also works hand and hand with our other committees to promote each of our events in advertising and sponsorship.  Events our Promotions Committee is involved in are our Top of the Lake Art Fest and Taste of Okeechobee, The Art & Wine Walk, Labor Day Celebration, Top of the Lake Christmas Festival and Parade and  Speckled Perch Festival and Parade .  info@okeechobeemainstreet.org

 

DESIGN:   

The purpose of the Design Committee is to shape the physical image of our community as a place that is attractive to shoppers, business owners and visitors, while maintaining its functionality and historical integrity.  The Design Committee should provide design assistance and encourage building improvements by working with business owners, county and city officials. They design ways to improve public spaces and to encourage preservation of historical resources. Currently our Design Committee is working on entrance way signs to the city and the “Adopt a Median” project.  info@okeechobeemainstreet.org

The purpose of the Arts and Culture Committee is to bring the visual, musical and theatrical arts to Okeechobee.  They are dedicated to serve the creative needs of our community by developing and supporting art organizations and individual artists and to present their cultural diversity for the benefit of Okeechobee.  Exposing the arts to our community, especially our children, inspires lifelong imagination and creativity.  Some of the Arts and Cultural Committee projects are the annual Top of the Lake Art Fest and Taste of Okeechobee, Art & Wine Walk on Park Street.
