With greater than 90% retention rate among sponsors, we are confident their participation is meeting their marketing and community awareness objectives. In addition to a strong return on your investment, sponsorship also offers many intangible benefits.

Community Support and Visibility
Sponsoring an event allows the public to enjoy concerts and activities while providing a service to Wichita and surrounding communities. Sponsorship affords companies great visibility and recognition as a community partner.

Employee Involvement and Satisfaction
Festival sponsorship is a great way to thank employees for the loyalty and hard work while instilling a sense of pride as employees bring friends and family to company sponsored events. Volunteering is a great way to enhance your sponsorship. Employees can serve on committees as well as participate in the implementation of the event. Showcase your company involvement to the community by creating a unique shirt, including your company name and logo, utilizing the annual festival poster artwork.
