There would be no Festival of Art, Wine & Music if it were not for the amazing volunteers. Throughout the weekend, it's the 500 volunteers make this community event happen. From the beer-slingers to the recycle-dumpster guys who squish down the cardboard, ALL of our volunteers are awesome. Most volunteers are coordinated through the Chamber, that sign-up app is usually available in April.
Businesses looking to grow their marketing presence and brand really should consider sponsoring the Festival on some level. Each year, anywhere from 60,000-90,000 people attend the 2-day event;; in addition, we also promote our sponsors in the weeks leading up to the event. Businesses are promoted on our various social media pages/platforms, a number of websites and in print; it all depending on the level of sponsorship that best fits the needs for your organization.
One specific way businesses can participate is by becoming a Beverage Booth Sponsor. For businesses looking to make a face-to-face connection with the community, this really is the best option. Meet thousands of potential clients and build your team comradery over the course of the Festival.
Note: all Booth volunteers must be over the age of 21.
