Sponsorship Opportunities for Barrie Waterfront Festival

Companies seeking to become a partner in the Barrie Waterfront Festival through sponsorship are invited to pursue this opportunity by telephoning the number listed below or by sending the festival organizers an eletronic message.

Our 16th annual event was an enormous success drawing crowds in excess of numbers anticipated. Weather permitting, the Annual Barrie Waterfront Festival is expected to draw crowds of 150,000 people comprising of locals and out-of-towners from neighbouring communities. It is also
Barrie Waterfront Festival - Great Music, Good Family Fun! - Heritage Park, Memorial Square
anticipated to be extremely popular with Barrie's street-side vendors, downtown businesses, merchants, restaurants, hotels and all levels of government.

To ensure maximum exposure of your product(s), we recommend providing the public hand-sized samples or brochures appropriately sized to make it easy to carry. Plastic give-away bags are always appreciated and suitable to carry several products. Many sponsors have success when they adopt a "cheerleading" approach, promoting their products through the use of mascots, greeters or entertaining activities and/or games. Be creative and original!

Keep in mind visitors come to our event because it offers safe family entertainment and promotes community spirit . Since it is Barrie's first outdoor Spring event, it is also a great opportunity for familes to shake off the winter cobwebs and enjoy the sunshine. Your participation in making it an enjoyable experience is essential to our success.

Providing information as to where the public can purchase your product(s) is especially important. We recommend providing "Cash Off" coupons and / or discount Incentives. Banners, information booths, vehicles with decals, flags, marketing personnel and A-frame signs with posters are simple ways to bring visibility to your product(s). Our primary sponsors are encouraged to make banners that will be posted on our stages. Sponsors will also be featured as we market the Barrie Waterfront Festival through our website, posters, local newspapers and other mechanisms. For complete details please contact our office using the e-mail address or phone numbers shown below.
