NEVER STOP IMAGINING ! brings local residents and business owners together and raises awareness to visitors about what else we have to offer , including lodging , dining , and other events and attractions .” Overall , tourism provides $ 52 million in economic impact locally according to the latest numbers provided by the Richmond Hill Convention & Visitors Bureau ( 2019 ), supporting 425 jobs and contributing $ 2.26 million in state tax revenue and $ 1.56 million in local tax revenue . Each Bryan County household would need to be taxed an additional $ 293 per year to replace taxes generated by tourism economic activity . “ The pandemic disrupted the travel and tourism industry in Richmond Hill , across the state , and around the world . But , with more Americans now in a travel-ready state of mind , we are optimistic that leisure travel will continue to increase .”

Kathryn Johnson reiterates , “ The Great

Ogeechee Seafood Festival is more than just a festival . It is a community event that supports the Chamber , local non-profits , businesses , hoteliers , and more . From a chamber perspective , not having the festival means losing hundreds of thousands of dollars in this community as a whole . For us specifically , the funds support our staff , local projects for the community , and has enabled us to keep our membership dues low . Additionally , over the years our board has proudly been able to reimburse all non-profit vendors their festival booth deposit in an effort to help them raise as many funds as possible in the three-day period . We look forward to putting on another fun-filled and entertaining festival this year so save the date ! Advanced purchase tickets will be on sale later this summer .” •
