Tourism Partners take home state award for “Eat. Drink. Buy Art.”

Worcester County Tourism (WCT) and area partners took home an award at the 39th annual Maryland Tourism & Travel Summit in November.

The multi-jurisdictional effort, which promotes main streets and arts and entertainment districts, earned the Leveraging Partnerships Award for the “Eat. Drink. Buy Art” (EDBA) campaign. The award was given for excellence and major contributions in expanding the market of Maryland tourism products, maximizing opportunities to generate overnight stays, leveraging partnerships, and showcasing Maryland as an exciting, must-see tourism destination.

“The EDBA campaign is your all-inclusive guide to what’s going on throughout the Eastern Shore of Maryland and Delaware,” Tourism Director Lisa Challenger said. “Discover Delmarva’s arts and entertainment districts, sample local faire, explore unique galleries, and enjoy local events. From bay to beach, we connect art lovers, foodies, and visitors with local artists, art venues, restaurants, breweries, wineries, and events in dozens of communities.”
