About Visit McMinnville
In 2014, the McMinnville City Council started laying the groundwork to establish McMinnville as a world-class tourism destination. Council members created a funding source and a leadership panel to design a plan promoting tourism as a primary pillar of the city’s long-term economic development strategy. After nearly two years of research and collaboration from the panel, the City Council approved the formation of Visit McMinnville. The organization is a full-service marketing group dedicated to enhancing McMinnville’s economy through the promotion of tourism. Visit McMinnville has created marketing projects, programs and service plans that it intends to implement in the coming year to achieve economic growth and prosperity for all city residents.
