Direct advertising support is available from the Pocahontas County Convention & Visitors Bureau for events held in Pocahontas County, which will generate overnight lodging. Events must be open to the public and must not discriminate based on race, sex, religion or handicap. Organizations will be eligible to receive funding for event advertising up to 100% of the event advertising budget, but not exceeding $2,000 for one day events and $4,000 for events lasting two or more days.
