The Community Marketing Program, Visit Golden, is a cooperative marketing effort between the City of Golden and the local retail business community that works to promote tourism and commerce within Golden. This cooperative effort combines professional marketing strategies with innovative community vision that produces award-winning and effective campaigns and promotions. Visit Golden utilizes a merchant-based funding mechanism, i.e. the “Vendors’ Fee,” to directly benefit retail sales, restaurants, entertainment venues and cultural attractions through increased awareness, visitation and patronage.
