It’s no surprise that Lancaster City has become a popular place to visit and live. What has also become evident is that it needed an organization to effectively convey everything positive Lancaster City has to offer both visitors and residents.
To that end, the Mayor’s Office of Special Events (MOOSE) and LancasterARTS – which merged in 2012 – have evolved to become the City of Lancaster Office of Promotion, or LOOP. The mission of this streamlined organization is to promote the city’s arts, culture, events, retail and dining attractions, as well as coordinate visitor services, with a unified voice to local and regional audiences. It also features a new website: visitlancastercity.com.
LOOP also will serve as a concierge to visitors. Having recently moved from MOOSE’s former headquarters on North Duke Street to the third floor of Old City Hall in Penn Square, LOOP has plans to renovate the existing Visitor Center, making its offerings more vibrant, interactive and technology-driven.
LOOP will continue MOOSE’s efforts in producing special events such as First Friday, Music Friday, Celebrate Lancaster, the Red Rose Run and Downtown Lancaster for the Holidays. Residents will be served by LOOP’s coordination of city services for events and the permitting process for use of public space.
