Get Involved with the Mobile Visitor Center “The Villager”
Get involved with Kent County Tourism's Mobile Visitor Center, The Villager, sponsored by Chesapeake Utilities
The Villager will attend festivals, fairs, and events that appeal to visitors to help pro-actively engage with them along with locals on what to do in Kent County. The mobile center will also travel to the various villages in Kent County during peak visitation months (April-October), which enables us to provide better service to the areas we promote. Our Visitor Service Coordinator will assist with making tour arrangements, dinner reservations and more for large groups that will be attending DE Turf, Firefly, NASCAR races, various meetings/conventions at hotels and attractions, on the spot.
On occasion, the Mobile Visitor Center will also travel to regional East Coast events to promote Kent County to neighboring communities (The Beaches, Wilmington, Salisbury, Ocean City & Philadelphia) to drive potential visitors to the area. The overall goal of “The Villager” is to generate a higher volume of visitors to Kent County attractions, retail shops and restaurants, in addition to extending the visitor’s length of stay and producing additional hotel room nights in Kent County. The Villager is a FREE service provided by Kent County Tourism to all hospitality tourism businesses and attractions. All attractions, restaurants, retail shops and accommodations can have their information and discount handouts in the truck FREE of Charge. There is a nominal fee for those wishing to have their information placed in a premier spot such as information racks outside of the van or a video played on the outside screen.
