For those coming to Flint for Back to the Bricks, the Crim or to visit the new Farmers Market, two new visitor centers will be opened to help highlight the area.

The Flint & Genesee Convention & Visitors Bureau announced plans to open two new visitors centers this year in downtown Flint – a main visitor center that will open on May 1st in the south lobby of the Commerce Center located at 519 S. Saginaw Street, and a second, smaller visitor center that will open in the new Flint Farmers Market on June 21st.

The FGCVVB says “having a visitor center in the heart of downtown Flint gives us an opportunity to assist visitors to our area identify and find area attractions, restaurants, hotels and other amenities. This will be especially helpful to visitors during major events such as the Back to the Bricks Car Cruise and the Crim Festival of Races.”

Hours of operation for the main visitor center will be from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday and will offer brochures, maps and other information about Flint and Genesee County. The Center will be manned by the Flint Sparks who are volunteers that work directly with the FGCVB to help welcome visitors to the community.

The visitor center at the Farmers Market will share space with The Whiting and will be open during regular market hours on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. In addition to tourist information, it will also offer Flint and Genesee County items for purchase such as calendars, T-shirts and keepsakes.

The FGCVB, who will continue to also operate the visitor center at Bishop Airport, is also looking for more volunteers to join the Flint Sparks to work in the visitor centers. To volunteer, contact Courtney Irish at (810) 600-1456.
