A Message From The Chamber President – 2019

Karen Tercek, President/CEO of the Willoughby Western Lake County Chamber of Commerce, shares some initial details and information on this year’s Willoughby ArtsFest.

We are in the planning stages for the 28th downtown Willoughby Artsfest held in historic downtown Willoughby, this year to be held on Saturday, July 20th! The downtown Willoughby Artsfest brings approximately 13,000 visitors to downtown Willoughby. Based on our Chamber of Commerce’s yearly survey, 25% of the 13,000 visitors come from outside of Lake County and 96% of our 140 juried artists come from outside of Lake County.

Why is this important to Willoughby and Lake County? As a Chamber of Commerce, we are drawing more outside visitors to become aware of the entertainment and attractions and patronize the businesses here in Willoughby and Lake County. As a chamber of Commerce, our mission is to draw more business to our geographical area.

Do you want to support business in Willoughby and Lake County? Contact us about volunteering for the Artsfest or make sure you attend the Artsfest on July 20th. We look forward to seeing you at the downtown Willoughby Artsfest this year!
