Every year, Downtown Mocksville hosts concerts, outdoor movies, festivals, and special events.

Did you know that the Mocksville Tourism Development Authority (MTDA) also welcomes grant proposals from non-profit and for-profit organizations for special projects and events designed to attract visitors to Downtown Mocksville?

“If your event encourages folks to come to downtown and Davie County, share your idea and see if we can assist with some financial support. We want more visitors as well as our local citizens to enjoy this town and all we have to offer,” said Mocksville Community Development Director Tami Langdon.   

The grants are funded through the town’s portion of the county’s hotel occupancy tax and are reviewed by the MTDA which assists with the development and marketing of Mocksville’s tourism attractions, assets, and potential tourism sites.

The MTDA board, made up of a representative of the Mocksville Town Board and Davie County Tourism, as well as Mocksville business owners and leaders, provides ideas and perspectives.

“With their leadership, Downtown Mocksville continues to grow and become a place for all ages to enjoy,” said Langdon.    

The 2023 grant cycle opens on Jan. 2. Any organization wishing to request funding must complete the Special Project Funding Request Form and the Budget Form found on the Town of Mocksville website. Applications are available to complete online or download and print a hard copy to submit. These forms must be submitted to Mocksville Tourism no later than  5 p.m. on April 28, 2023. Applications received after the grant cycle is closed may be reviewed on a case-by-case basis or will be considered in the next grant cycle in the following year.
