The mission of the Morehead Recreation, Tourism and Convention Commission is to attract visitors to our area by providing financial, marketing and cooperative planning for local events and attractions. Food and dance are major tourists attractors. Food is the center of our event planning. In late February 2017 we opened the Morehead Visitor Center as a way to communicate with our community and with visitors. We also own and operate the Morehead Conference Center, manage the Rowan County Arts Center and rent and maintain the Moonlight Stage outdoor venue. We want to continue to grow and make Morehead Kentucky an adventure destination.
Morehead Conference Center, conveniently located in downtown Morehead, just off I-64, is a versatile multi-purpose event venue. The Conference Center is a functional and dynamic space for trade shows, expos, meetings, as well as comfortable enough for personal engagements such as reunions and weddings. Most everything we host here at the center involves food and several incorporate dance in the mix. We are a huge community partner with all things Morehead. We have been open since Spring 2006 and have welcomed over 500,000 people including visitors to the facility in our 11 years of existence. We want to continue to grow our business and partner regionally and at the state level to increase our economic impact.
The Morehead Visitor Center is the local welcome spot for tourists visiting and staying in Morehead. We offer a gift shop, information, advertise local events and have a unique platform around the facility that could be a venue for an event. We are located in the historic passenger depot. Our community hosts a wealth of food events. Social media is our biggest advertising tool. We also advertise regionally and nationally to bring in visitors to Morehead and Rowan County. We hope our visitor center will grow and become a regional stop for everyone visiting our area.
