SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES for FERTILE GROUND

The Fertile Ground Festival invites sponsors to support Portland’s 10-day, city-wide festival of new works of artistic creation.

Sponsorship funding will ensure the festival longevity and ultimately increase local, regional and national attention to Portland’s burgeoning Arts economy.

As a sponsorship partner with Fertile Ground, you will gain audience visibility with arts patrons who are typically affluent, educated and active. They are socially engaged consumers who make decisions based on brand identification and local affiliation.

By supporting Fertile Ground as a sponsor, your business or organization will demonstrate to patrons your commitment to the Arts in Portland.

NOTE: For inclusion in Festival Guide, agreement must be made by November 1, additional print advertising deadlines are variable.

Please contact Nicole Lane Festival Director, for more information.
