The SBVC is an investment in our community and ultimately the success of your business.
Our job is to promote Sturgeon Bay and our member partners to those that live here as well as those that visit. We are the organization that works to create the quality of life that is important to everyone who visits through our events, activities and cityscaping.
Imagine Sturgeon Bay without flowers or street art, without festivals or fireworks. We know that these things are only a small part of why we love Sturgeon Bay, but they’re an important part!
We also know that every business has a budget and we promise to invest your dollars in our community so that they come back to you through our local residents and our visitors. We want to be your partner, and together we can continue to promote Sturgeon Bay as THE premier destination to live, work, shop and play!
