REP THE CITY

Downtown Springfield Inc. has launched a new summertime program, Rep the City, for young adults 25 and under to experience downtown Springfield in a fresh, curated way. This ambassadors program is supported by premier sponsor Security Bank, as well as Brown Hay & Stephens and Springfield Electric. People interested in being ambassadors for 2022 should contact Taylor Moore.

Our first class of 48 ambassadors is experiencing a jam-packed month of downtown fun, from style parties at downtown boutiques to coffee crawls to access to special events.  It’s so much fun to watch them on Instagram and Facebook share their downtown experiences!

Our goal, as always!, is to get more people involved and passionate about Downtown Springfield. This program was a brainchild of our internship crew that helped DSI during our 2020 COVID Summer: Emma Schafer, Julia Curry, Abby Milhiser and Erin Gheen.

“I love Rep the City because I get to influence other people to support my favorite downtown businesses! It is so fun to meet the local business owners and create content for my Instagram (@skzzolo) and Youtube Channel (Sammy K)!” ⁃ Samantha Palazzol0

Meet everyone in our 2021 Rep the City cohort!
