The Downtown Clermont Partnership is considering the purchase of a historical trolley.  The trolley will provide an extra attraction for Downtown Clermont during all daily and special events, as well as a form of transportation between the waterfront, downtown and areas of parking off the main street.  Future possibilities may include such features as local hop on, hop off shuttle service and tours of the Historic Downtown and waterfront areas

The Clermont Downtown Partnership (CDP), is a not-for-profit group of businesses, primarily located in the Downtown Clermont area, focused on attracting people to visit and shop Downtown Clermont.

Erika Shanoff, President of CDP, describes the organization as 70 members strong and open to anyone in the Greater Clermont community. She states, “We strive to create a thriving prosperous Historic Downtown.  This organization has been operating for more than 15 years. Our members include retail businesses, restaurants, churches, banks and non-profit organizations. Our goal as an organization is to create a positive destination for shopping, dining and entertainment.”

CDP offers events such as the Weekly Farmer’s Markets, Monthly Food Truck and Music on Montrose Nights, the Annual Downtown Clermont Art Festival Weekend, two Annual Mega Food Truck Rallies and the Annual Harvest Festival. Each of these events feature live music, food trucks, vendors, activities for kids, and exposure to our downtown shops and businesses.  The CDP is constantly brainstorming for new events to be added to its current calendar. Overall attendance at special events for the year is over 150,000 residents, vendors and tourists.  Sponsors are continually being sought by the Clermont Downtown Partnership to support all downtown area events and activities.

The CDP is looking for Trolley Sponsors to provide the CDP with the ability to purchase, staff and maintain a historic trolley in Clermont’s Downtown area. Platinum, Gold and Bronze Sponsorships are described below:

  • Platinum Sponsorship benefits include: a large advertising banner on side of Trolley- exposure to 150,000 plus people.

  • Gold Silver and Bronze Sponsorships will be available for $2500, $2000 and $1500 respectively per year, while Friends of CDP Sponsorships are only $500 per year with a special smaller set of benefits for each package.
