Sponsorship

This year marks the 27th 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 27 years, Applefest has grown into a top event in the region, 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 both 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.

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

If interested in supporting Warwick Applefest 2015 through sponsorship, please contact Michael Johndrow, Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, at 845-986-2720 or info@warwickcc.org.
