Sponsorship 2017

Sponsors make it possible for the Festival to book amazing artists and take care of vital overhead costs like insurance, staging and sound, sanitation, and first aid. Having sponsorship funds ahead of the Festival means that we can plan and deliver amazing entertainment, exciting contest prizes, dynamic workshops, and special extras like our new Concert in the Park community program, and our Volunteer Appreciation program.  Thanks to our generous sponsors who helped us launch the festival in 2016.

We have re-vamped our sponsorship program to give our sponsors more flexibility with their sponsor benefits. Please contact the Festival Executive Committee if you have any questions.

Application Deadline is July 15 to take advantage of all of the great marketing benefits for you or your company!
