About The CAPC

Our mission is to contribute to the economic growth of the area by developing and promoting Eureka Springs as a destination for leisure travel, meetings, conventions, and events while enhancing our visitors’ experiences.

We are funded by the residents of, and visitors to, Eureka Springs, Arkansas through a 3% sales tax on all prepared food, beverages, and lodging.  We use those funds to advertise and promote the city of Eureka Springs. We also provide advertising and promotional support to our attractions, businesses, festivals, meetings and events that bring visitors to Eureka Springs.

The Commissioners created this site to provide access to our forms and marketing materials, as well as to help showcase some of the advertising and promotional materials our commission has helped produce and fund.

We currently meet at 6 pm on the second Wednesday each month in the city Auditorium (36 S. Main). The public is invited to attend, or can view the taped meeting the following day and our meetings are televised on Cox Channel 21.

Workshops are held at the CAPC office every fourth Wednesday of each month at 4pm. When that date is just prior to a national holiday, the workshop will usually be held on the third Wednesday. The public is invited to attend workshops as well.
