Downtown Mocksville is a hub of excitement with a wealth of concerts, outdoor movies, festivals, and special events. However, there’s more to it than meets the eye. The Mocksville Tourism Development Authority (MTDA) actively encourages grant proposals from both non-profit and for-profit organizations aiming to organize special projects and events that draw visitors to Downtown Mocksville.
“If your event entices people to explore Downtown and Davie County, share your idea with us, and let’s explore the possibility of providing financial support. We aspire to offer more visitors, including our local residents, the chance to revel in our town and its diverse offerings,” expressed Tami Langdon, Mocksville’s community development coordinator.
These grants are funded through the town’s portion of the county’s hotel occupancy tax and undergo evaluation by the MTDA. This organization is dedicated to supporting the growth and promotion of Mocksville’s tourism attractions, assets, and potential tourism sites. The MTDA board, comprising a representative from the Mocksville Town Board, Davie County Tourism, and influential figures from Mocksville’s business community, contributes innovative ideas and valuable perspectives.
“With their support, Downtown Mocksville thrives, evolving into a destination that caters to individuals of all ages,” Langdon further added.
This year, the MTDA is pleased to present grants for the following events.
