Rink & Gymnasium Advertising

At the Hyannis Youth & Community Center, a community center and sports complex that includes twin rinks, indoor basketball/volleyball, a walking track and meeting rooms — thousands of visitors to the area and local participants with spectators attend sports tournaments, multi-generational programs and business meetings converge each year.  The facility offers advertising space for businesses to showcase their brand and offer creative promotional opportunities to enhance sales and encourage visitation.  

Tourism Brochures at Busy Locations

The tourism brochure program provides businesses with space for their takeaway materials at busy welcome centers in the year-round Hyannis Youth & Community Center and at the seasonal Bismore Park Welcome Center located at Hyannis Harbor. 

Both locations offer high foot traffic; with consumers looking for leisure activities and destinations to do and see during their visit to the area. Tourism related brochures and rack cards are placed in highly visible and easily accessible display units at both busy locations.

Calling All Culinary & Food Service Entrepreneurs

The Snack Shack at the Harbor Overlook is a new attraction for visitors to grab a quick snack on their way through to Main Street and Hyannis Harbor. An ideal meeting spot with casual seating for an afternoon break, quick treat and harbor view, this food component complements the Hyannis HyArts Artist Shanties, live music & interactive programs scheduled each week at the Harbor Overlook. The Harbor Overlook is a scenic and visible spot in downtown Hyannis, located in the heart of the Hyannis HyArts Cultural District, at the corner of South and Ocean Streets, steps away from the island ferry terminals, Hyannis Main Street, the Village Green, Bismore Park and overlooking Aselton Park and Hyannis Harbor.

This colorful and comfortable space was created to be a vibrant community gathering place and incubator for pop up businesses for creatives in all disciplines. Those in the artist shanties and vendors at the Snack Shack are offered a low risk, low cost opportunity in a popular setting to ‘test drive’ their products and services in a prime, highly visible, and heavily trafficked area, and to be immersed in and a part of the sights and sounds of Downtown Hyannis and the Harborfront.
