Meet the Fort Stockton Convention & Visitor Bureau!

The City of Fort Stockton through the Fort Stockton Convention and Visitor Bureau (CVB) promotes and manages tourism for Fort Stockton.  Funding comes from local imposed Hotel/Motel taxes.  CVB Staff is housed at the Visitor Center in addition to the Fort Stockton Chamber of Commerce.

The CVB is responsible for marketing Fort Stockton as a tourist destination via all forms of media including electronic, print advertising, billboards and brochure publication. The CVB manages and operates city owned properties including the Historic Fort, the Grey Mule Saloon and the Fort Stockton Visitor Center and Grounds.

In order to better manage the City’s tourism assets, the CVB contracts the Fort Stockton Chamber of Commerce and the Fort Stockton Historical Society to operate the Visitor Center and its Historic Sites.  Cooperative efforts between the CVB, Pecos County, the Fort Stockton Historical Society, the Fort Stockton Chamber of Commerce, local hotel/motel management and local business allow for a cohesive and pleasant experience for all of the community’s visitors.

The CVB also funds Special Events and Conventions such as Water Carnival, Historic Fort Days, the Biannual International Silhouette Shooters Competition, athletic events and educational conventions.  Multiple sites are available in Fort Stockton for meetings/conventions and the CVB assists with all aspects to ensure a successful event.
