Heber Valley 2024 Special Event Cooperative Marketing Grant Allocation

Heber Valley, Utah (February 8, 2024) — The Heber Valley Chamber, Tourism, and Economic Development office is proud to announce the recipients of this year’s Special Event Cooperative Marketing Grant, a vital initiative aimed at leveraging Wasatch County Transient Room Tax (TRT) to bolster economic development and tourism in Heber Valley.

“The primary objective of this grant program is to attract out-of-county visitors, enhancing tourism expenditures all year long. The TRT funds are designated exclusively for marketing and advertising efforts outside of Wasatch County,” said Dallin Koecher, Executive Director at Heber Valley Chamber, Tourism, and Economic Development.

This year, the Economic Development office received 14 applications, awarding grants to 13 exceptional projects, resulting in a total disbursement of $70,000. Notably, this amount reflects a $20,000 increase compared to previous years, providing additional support for worthy causes and projects within Heber Valley. Grant money is awarded based on careful consideration of various criteria, including the ability to increase overnight stays, positive ROI, quality marketing strategy, events held during off-peak seasons, and the overall impact on the local community.

Applicants are eligible for a 50% match of their total marketing cost. Grants typically range from $500 to $2,500 per applicant. Funds are approved for use on marketing mediums such as broadcast, print, posters, flyers, e-digital platforms, and other marketing methods outside of Wasatch County.

2024 Award Recipients:
1. Soldier Hollow Classic Sheepdog Festival – Moving to Memorial Day weekend in 2024, the multi-day event anticipates 12,000 total attendees, plus dogs and owners. The event will also include sponsorships and vendor participation.

2. Soldier Hollow Two Events: IBU World Cup & Bike Fest – The IBU Biathlon World Cup aims to attract 1,500 daily onsite attendees, plus nearly 300 athletes, coaches, trainers, and support staff from around the world. The annual Bike Fest will include an international PAN-AM event in 2024, attracting 425 pro and 450 amateur racers plus spectators.

3. Heber Valley Red, White & Blue Festival – Expanding the event from its inaugural year in 2023, the Red, White & Blue Festival serves both locals and visitors, encouraging area residents to stay local and visitors from the Wasatch Front to visit Heber Valley to celebrate Independence Day with a small-town celebration.

4. Heber Valley Horse Sale – Happening in April 2024, this will be the first horse sale of the year in the intermountain area. The event features 100 horses and expects 2,000 attendees, many that stay overnight to attend both days.
