Jonesborough to be featured on magazine cover

The Town of Jonesborough will grace the cover of the regional magazine Fun Things To Do In The Mountains two times in 2010, according to Town officials.
The covers will showcase some of Jonesborough’s best assets, said Amber Crumley, director of marketing and tourism for the Town.
The May cover will focus on spring and summer events in Jonesborough, while the September cover will place emphasis on the annual International Storytelling Festival.
The features will help Jonesborough get exposure in markets normally it could be priced out of, according to Crumley.
“It’s expensive to get into the Asheville (N.C.) market, so we’re trying to take advantage of that,” Crumley said. “We can get our information and events out without the distribution charge.”
Fun Things publishes 11 times a year and is entering its 18th year in existence. It distributes into 35 counties in Western North Carolina, East Tennessee and Southern Virginia.
“Demographic wise, it really works with the area and the people who are picking up the magazines,” Crumley said. “It’s a huge region.”
In addition, both the features and the advertising about the town will help visitors to Jonesborough realize the amount of things there are to do in Tennessee’s Oldest Town – and encourage them to stay overnight, Crumley said.
“With all the activities coming up, it gives people the chance to plan a nice, packed weekend,” she said.
