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 2,500 people and we got incredible feedback from our attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors.

We expect at least 4,000 people to show up for the event this year. As a sponsor, your brand will be promoted through our website, on our Facebook page, and in our event program. At higher levels, you’ll also be mentioned in our press releases and can potentially have your logo on the official event t-shirt.

As a sponsor, 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 literature that will go in the 250 gift bags that we give to the first 250 attendees who arrive.

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