2018 Lincoln Arts Festival Sponsorship Opportunities

SPONSORSHIP LEVEL SUMMARY

The Lincoln Arts Council invites you to become a sponsor for our 18th annual Lincoln Arts Festival to be held September 22nd-23rd, 2018. This exciting event will be held at the SouthPointe Pavilions at 27th and Pine Lake Roads.

Our growing crowds of 8,000-10,000 consist of Lincolnites ranging in age from 30-75 most of who report having disposable income, a portion of which is spent on dining, entertainment, and cultural activities. These attendees also tend to be on the beginning of trends and are actively creating personalized lifestyles. Arts festival attendees are inclined to support organizations that partner with the arts as well as placing a high value on supporting local business. It’s for these reasons we believe that your sponsorship of the Lincoln Arts Festival would benefit your organization. 
 
The primary source of funding for this growing community event is from business sponsors, such as your organization. Your sponsorship helps to underwrite the many programs and services that the Lincoln Arts Council provides such as expanding the powerful work of the Art Makes Me SmART educational outreach program –a professional program designed to impact under-resourced elementary children and youth-at-risk, providing them with unique platforms for expression and life changing experiences.
