After 2020, a year in which the COVID-19 pandemic curtailed most events, Real Racine – Racine County’s destination marketing organization – is ready for a rebound.

“During a time of social distancing and summer travel, we want to provide you with tips to still have fun, but safely,” the organization states on its website.

During the past year, Real Racine has devoted its website and social media pages to help visitors and residents keep up with patronizing local events and businesses. Meanwhile, staying safe from the COVID-19 virus. For example, the organization has a list of local restaurants with carryout options available here.

For this spring and summer, Real Racine has also planned a wide variety of outdoor events for participants and spectators alike.

“The overwhelming majority of people are excited to have events back. They are interested and engaged in the community and want the ability to get out and participate. However, nearly everyone’s enthusiasm is paired with the requirement that events are safe,” says Cari Greving, Real Racine events and marketing director.
