UMaine’s CenTRO Research Cited in Folk Festival Article

A Bangor Daily News article about the 10th anniversary of Bangor’s American Folk Festival includes a reference to research by the University of Maine-based Center for Tourism Research and Outreach, which revealed that 93 percent of visitors to the festival say they return each year.  The research on visitor experience and economic analysis of the festival, which CenTRO staff and students did at no cost, showed that in 2008 and 2009, the festival attracted some 60,000 people who spent nearly $10 million in the Bangor area each year and created more than 100 jobs.
