Sponsor the Festival
Associate your brand with a beloved local event bringing artistic talent to Albemarle County!
Sponsor the Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival and associate your business with a thriving and highly anticipated local event catering to a broad clientele ranging from serious art afficionados to casual shoppers, and welcoming many families out for a fun-filled, wholesome weekend event in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Crozet Arts and Crafts Festivals is held in support of the non-profit, community owned and operated Claudius Crozet Park, meaning your Sponsorship of the Festivals also directly benefits this 22-acre Park and its many community resources and events.
We are committed to offering our Sponsors the full value of being a part of the Crozet Arts and Crafts Festivals through promotion, visibility, and marketing opportunities. We recognize that each Sponsor is unique, with different products, services, marketing strategies, and business objectives, and we look forward to designing a Sponsorship plan to meet your individual requirements.
The Festivals offer the opportunity to engage the public in a unique product/brand experience at the events during Festival weekends and throughout the Commonwealth during our marketing and promotional periods. With Sponsorship plans tailored to your requirements, we can integrate your business and brand into the variety of marketing media the Festival utilizes, as well as offer a personal and direct relationship opportunity with the public at our events.
Sponsorship of the Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival has been and will continue to be of utmost importance to the Festival, the community of Crozet, and the surrounding area. We look forward to working with you to develop a Sponsorship arrangement beneficial to your business.
