MEMBER RESOURCES For PartnersThe Massachusetts Cultural Council promotes Massachusetts destinations by officially recognizing districts of arts and culture. We are excited that Downtown Great Barrington has received a Cultural District designation. This will help us market the unique offerings in our town and draw visitors to our area to shop, dine, and attend events. The more folks walking our streets, the more our businesses thrive! 

With the use of social media and other tools, Cultural District Partners can take advantage of a cross promotional machine worth thousands in advertising to each business but FREE to participate in. The Cultural District Steering Committee has created a promotional plan with some fun and simple tools to promote your event and/or business. Using these tools, we can create the buzz needed to make the cultural district designation effective and reap the rewards of increased traffic to downtown GB and surrounding areas.

Here are tools you can use to take advantage of this promotional opportunity:   

STOREFRONT
Post the Great Barrington Cultural District Sticker in your window. It is a great talking point and a chance to tell your customers where to find information about the district.
