2023 Annual Report

In 2023, Love Live Local celebrated its 10th anniversary, marking a decade of community dedication and remarkable growth. We redefined our mission and vision, deepened our commitment to advocacy, and achieved record-breaking attendance at our Love Local Fests. Through initiatives like Boost Your Brand workshops and the Local Business Boost Program, we empowered local entrepreneurs and provided vital support to small businesses. Collaborating with partners, we highlighted the stories of local businesses and encouraged community support during the holiday season. None of this would have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors and donors, showcasing the strength and solidarity of our community.
