Applefest ’14 seeks sponsors for 26th anniversary festival

This year marks the 26th anniversary of Warwick Applefest! The annual fundraiser is co-sponsored by the Warwick Valley Community Center and the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Over the past 26 years, Applefest has grown remarkably, and now attracts some 35,000 visitors annually. It has been voted “Best Food Event” and “Best Family & Arts Festival” by Times Herald-Record readers for the past several years, and has been included in the “Top 100 Events in the Nation” by the American Bus Association.

In addition to hundreds of craft and food vendors, music performances on several stages and a children’s carnival, over 50 area not-for-profit organizations rely on Applefest as their most important fundraiser of the year.

To help ensure the success of this important fundraiser, festival organizers seek the support of sponsors. Organizers look forward to welcoming returning and new sponsors to the event’s “Sponsorship Row.”

Applefest sponsor names will be branded with various levels of recognition, prior to and during the festival, including banners, print, TV and radio advertising. Sponsors also have the opportunity to take orders and sell items at their booth.

This year’s sponsorship packet, posted on the Applefest website, describes the opportunities and benefits of the different levels of sponsorship. For information about Applefest, download this year’s sponsorship brochure.

Sponsorship levels fill up quickly. Space is limited, and the deadline for sponsorship confirmation is July 31.

If interested in supporting Warwick Applefest 2014 through sponsorship, please call Michael Johndrow, Executive Director of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce, at 845-986-2720 or email him at info@warwickcc.org.
