Our sponsors make the Doylestown Arts Festival possible and help to secure the future of this community tradition. There are opportunities at many levels to ensure sponsorship is accessible to both local and regional businesses and organizations. We work hard to give our sponsors recognition and drive community awareness and support. With tens of thousands of attendees and nationwide exposure, the Doylestown Arts Festival is an excellent vehicle to showcase your support of the arts and local community.

:: Application Process

Sponsorship opportunities are available on a first-come basis. If you choose a level which has already been claimed, we will contact you with alternative opportunities. Sponsorship levels are limited and sell out quickly. Due to print and advertising deadlines, the application will close on July 1, 2020. All applicants are reviewed and responded to.

:: Sponsor Booths

Some sponsor levels include a 10x10 booth space at the festival. These booths are included in the cost of the sponsorship. Sponsors are responsible for their own tent and materials. An activation space at the event can provide enormous benefit to organizations seeking brand exposure and an opportunity to interact with visitors and locals from the community.

:: Sponsor Recognition

All sponsors will be recognized on our website with links out to their website. Additionally, pending your sponsor level, select sponsors will be recognized on print collateral, festival signage, t-shirts, bags, and our social media platforms.

:: Tax-Deductible

Your sponsorship of the Doylestown Arts Festival is considered a donation and is therefore a tax-dedutible expense. Our parent organization, Discover Doylestown, can provide all required paperwork to ensure you get the most out of your contribution.
