Although most group business booked by the Convention & Visitors Bureau has canceled since the pandemic began in the spring, a few remain on the calendar. Please keep in mind these groups could still cancel but if they don’t, we encourage you to welcome them on your business’ marquee and in other ways to show them their business is appreciated.
