Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goal of 750 visitors per day has been set for the 2015 Stagecoach Days celebration. Art show participants, costumer competitors, musicians and living history presenters should increase 20 percent. Visitor surveys will be available for comments and suggestions from tourists. Comment cards will be distributed to all exhibitors and participants. These surveys will emphasize the changes in events that are new in 2015, the effectiveness of the signage and advertising, and the overall success of the event and their part in it.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We successfully increased the music experience by contracting with local and regional groups to improve the quality of music as well as encourage those groups with a loyal following to come to Mantorville. The addition of the sound, light and staging enhanced the whole experience and rendered a festive atmosphere.
