Woodville Deer and Wildlife Festival

Woodville Deer and Wildlife FestivalTLNC staff, along with an economic development master's student, conducted an on-site, two-day assessment of the city of Woodville, which is located in Wilkinson County, on Mississippi’s western border with Louisiana. The team met with festival leaders and determined ways to enhance marketing efforts of the Deer and Wildlife Festival, including the use of social media, email marketing and visitor surveys. As a result, the 2012 festival attendance grew by 60 percent, and the number of vendors and cook-off teams nearly doubled.
