What do sponsorships pay for?
Your sponsorship covers our non-income producing expenses of the Festival and these include advertising, insurance, portable restroom trailer stations, entertainment, the professional stage that includes sound, light, performers, electricity, and other various fees. It is the generous support of our business sponsors and donors; the Festival has been able to promote Henderson County Apples and Heritage for years.Each year, we have 250,000 attendees and over $12 million infused into the Hendersonville area economy due to the Festival. Besides our local residents, we welcome visitors come across Western North Carolina, the Upstate of South Carolina and from all parts of the United States. Your contribution shows our community that you are dedicated in promoting and enriching our area with your giving.
The North Carolina Apple Festival could not exist without the valued support of our sponsors and donors. We would love to talk to you about including your business as a Sponsor. There are many opportunities including participation in the Street Fair and naming rights to the stage; parade, or other events.
2016 Update: The Sponsor deadline has passed for this year. We thank our returning and new Sponsors for their support. As this point, we do not have any Sponsor Vendor Spaces and the 2016 Brochure has been printed.
