Planning for the new year at Downtown PKB

2018 has been an exciting year for growth in Downtown PKB, and we look forward to the many opportunities 2019 has in store for our community! Over the past year, Downtown PKB hosted 9 events, partnered on 2 events with other community agencies and welcome many new businesses to downtown with ribbon cuttings and open houses.

Here in our office we are already anticipating the arrival of Spring and the kick off to our busiest time of the year. With events such as Savor Saturday coming to you in March held in conjunction with the Comicon, Taste of Parkersburg in June or our Point Park Concerts on the River during the summer months, it’s hard not to look forward to those exciting events and begin all the work that goes into making sure they go off without a hitch.

We’ve already spent time putting pen to paper getting a head start on the details of our upcoming 2019 events, which have seen a fantastic growth in attendance over the past couple of years. With every passing year, the positive feedback and increased attendance numbers fuels our fire to continue to bring great food and entertainment events to families in our downtown community while taking strides to promote our cultural assets and current businesses.

As we begin to work on plans for all the great things we have in store for downtown in 2019, we encourage any interested businesses looking for an opportunity to get in front of the community at one of our events to consider our sponsorship opportunities.

Interested individuals and businesses who believe in our mission and would like to help us grow our downtown revitalization efforts are encouraged to consider joining our Partner Program. This past year, several projects were made possible with funds raised by our Partner Program. For more information about our Partner Program, visit our website at

Be on the lookout for amazing things coming to Downtown PKB in 2019! Downtown PKB…this is the place!
