Sponsor the Festival

Sponsorship is a great way to get your brand name in front of an interested audience. Last year’s event attracted over 2,300 people and we got incredible feedback from our attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors. Of the 650+ attendees we surveyed 93% said they’d come back in 2015!

We expect at least 2,500 people to show up for the event this year! As a sponsor, your logo and website will be promoted through our website, our Facebook page, and in our event program. At higher levels we’ll also include your logo in our printed advertising materials.

You’ll also get a table at the event where you can talk to people one on one, offer product samples, and spread the word about your brand. Sponsorship sends a strong message of support to the veg-friendly community in the Twin Cities. Finally, sponsors get to provide products and/or literature that will go in the 250 gift bags that we will stuff for attendees!

Contact us at sponsorship@tcvegfest.com if you have any questions.
