Visit Oxford established themselves as one of the top tourism partners in the state last year as they were
recognized for their hard work by the Mississippi Tourism Association. The organization received three statewide awards at the association’s annual Governor’s Conference on Tourism on Oct. 21.

They were named “Destination Marketing Organization of the Year” and “Tourism Partnership of the Year,” and also received the “Large Festival Event of the Year” award for the Double Decker festival. “They are beyond talented and they work tirelessly for our community,” said Mayor Robyn Tannehill. “These awards are super competitive, I mean they’re statewide awards so to bring home three of these awards is certainly a huge testament to the work they’re doing.”
