What is the JAPC?
The Jasper Advertising and Promotion Commission (JAPC) was formed in 2021 when the City Council approved Ordinance 2021-3-1000 pursuant to Acts of Arkansas 18 of 1965 and 123 of 1969. The goal of the Commission is to promote the City of Jasper, Arkansas, and all it has to offer, both to tourists and area residents.
JAPC organizes community events including the Westbrook Music Series, Junk & Jam, Holly Jolly Christmas, the Dogwood Tour in the Spring, and the Autumn Color Tour in the Fall. JAPC collaborates with and promotes other organizations including the Kiwanis Club, the Buffalo River Elk Festival Committee, Newton County Chamber of Commerce, and local businesses.
