Be a Sponsor
Over 8500+ guests attended our last festival (pre-COVID.) This year we changed the date, so that college is in session. Our first festival when students are in town!
The sponsor of the Kid’s Zone will have vertical banners at the zone entry point. This is the perfect opportunity for companies that provide products or services to children. Sponsors have a table to offer coupons and flyers.
Music runs all day every day on the Main Stage. A banner hangs across the stage with the sponsor’s name and logo. A table and chairs are provided for handouts. Your logo and a QR code go on our website and social media posts
Food & Beverage
Needless to say, this is one of the most popular areas at the Festival. The sponsor of the Food zone will have vertical banners at the entry point. It’s a high-profile location for any business. Table and chairs provided. Location, location, location – the amount of traffic is amazing.
arts & Crafts
The sponsor of the Arts zone will have vertical banners at the zone entry point. This area is full of artisans offering products and conducting workshops. It is a great opportunity for companies that provide DIY tools and crafting supplies. Table and chairs provided.
