About Rowan County Tourism
Rowan County Tourism
The Rowan County Tourism (Rowan Tourism) is a North Carolina Public Authority established through enabling legislation from the North Carolina General Assembly. Rowan Tourism is County-wide in scope, and its efforts are directed to the development of Rowan County’s potential tourism and meeting sites, including all sections and communities of the County. Rowan Tourism is organized to promote and encourage visitor travel activities in Rowan County, North Carolina and to assemble and disseminate information designed to maintain and further develop Rowan County’s position in the visitor industry. Rowan Tourism will seek out partnerships across Rowan County in order to achieve the founding purpose.
Rowan Tourism is governed by an 11-member board of directors whose appointment guidelines and legal authority were established by the NC General Assembly in accordance with NC Session Law 2017-202. Unless otherwise noticed, Rowan Tourism Board Meetings are held the third Wednesday of each month at 12 p.m. in the Gateway Building, 204 East Innes Street, Salisbury, NC 28144.
Rowan Tourism manages the Paul E. Fisher Gateway Building, the Rowan Arts Council and the F&M Bank Trolley System. The Rowan Arts Council serves to promote and sustain one of Rowan County’s most vital resources — the visual and performing arts. The F&M Trolley System is an enterprise operation that operates two motorized trolleys which are rented for tours, groups, events and other group transportation needs. The Paul E. Fisher Gateway Building houses Rowan Tourism, Chamber of Commerce, Economic Development Commission, Three Rivers LandTrust, the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra and Communities In Schools.
