More than 90,000 people attended events at The Strand in 2009. According to the Arts & Economic Prosperity: The Economic Impact of Nonprofit Arts Organizations and Their Audiences study, the spending for restaurants, hotels, parking, souvenirs, refreshments, and other similar costs that come with attending arts events average $22.87 per local individual and $38.05 per nonlocal attendee. That's more than $2 million of audience-related spending in the local community, thanks to the Strand.
Additionally, the Strand's expenditures are more than half a million dollars a year that return to the community. Ticket sales and concessions sales account for thousands of dollars in taxes, in addition to $25,000 in property tax alone.
