As Managing Partner of Dimmitt Chevrolet, Liz Dimmitt has her hands full. Yet this relentlessly creative Pinellas County native has an extensive background as a “cultural strategist,” too, working with companies, cities, brands, and individuals to create unique cultural programming, events and experiences. It is her passion. Her hometown project is a 12,000-square-foot immersive, interactive, Florida-themed art “experience called Fairgrounds, which will open in 2021 inside the Factory, the massive (six acres) Warehouse Arts District complex. “It’s a place where you go with your family and have fun all day, and play, and experience the cool, wild, and wonderful things about Florida,” Dimmitt says. “So it really is a modern-day fairgrounds.”
WHAT IS ONE THING YOU WISH YOU KNEW ABOUT YOUR WORK 3 YEARS AGO?
To be honest, to have a pandemic plan! Three years ago having a pandemic plan was not something I would’ve ever imagined needing. As the CEO of Fairgrounds and Managing Partner of Dimmitt Chevy, it continues to be my main priority to keep my staff and customers safe. It means being prepared, pivoting and being on top of what’s happening in our local community.
