Downtown Parkersburg is the place where we come together to make our downtown a place for everyone to enjoy.
This is the place to think outside the box, to give warm welcomes, and take pride in your city.
Downtown Selfie Stations
Downtown PKB’s Arts and Culture Committee is planning to add more public art and give the community a chance to say “cheese” at the same time! Selfie Stations are being planned for downtown incorporating murals from local artists on the sides of buildings. The first selfie station mural will be on the side of the Greater Parkersburg Convention and Visitors Bureau this spring! Our goal is to have three installed in 2019 and more next year. Our final plan will incorporate a self-guided walking tour in downtown of all the Selfie Stations….a great place for senior pictures or just to show you’ve visited our area and took a selfie here! Make sure to tag the hashtag #WeArePKB
Downtown PKB’s Design Committee has recently added several decorative banners which serve to welcome visitors to our downtown community. Banners are changed out quarterly to freshen up Market Street and provide some colorful signage to downtown. This past fall we will be launched our Veteran themed Adopt -A-Banner Program. A limited number of pole banners were available for the community to honor and remember the memory of a special veteran in their life. Banners are on display through the next installation downtown.
