Dear Friend of the Festival:
The Red Flannel Festival Board is hard at work preparing for the 77th Red Flannel Festival. As always, the goal of the Board is to make this year’s Festival a fun-filled, family-oriented experience that’s bigger and better than ever. The theme for the 2016 Festival is “All Aboard The Red Flannel Express!”
It’s the goal of the Red Flannel Festival Board to partner with you to promote and market your business to the fullest extent! Red Flannel events bring over 35,000 guests to the Cedar Springs area during Red Flannel events! OUR 8.5” x 11” full-color Festival brochure and Red Flannel Press combination is a HUGE success with over 10,000 copies printed and distributed in Kent, Montcalm, Muskegon, Newaygo, Ottawa and Mecosta Counties.
We’re excited to share we have partnered with 95.7FM Radio in GRAND RAPIDS to air commercials, and will air EXCITING, FUN TELEVISION COMMERCIALS on FOX 17 to positively promote your business, the Red Flannel Festival and Cedar Springs! The Festival FACEBOOK PAGE compliments our website with over 5,600 fans to date!
As an independent, all volunteer non-profit organization, the Festival needs the support of the area business community to ensure its continued success. Enclosed is a list of sponsorship opportunities in which your business can invest. In exchange for this investment, your business will receive the tangible benefit of significant name exposure that will help market and promote your business in the Kent, Montcalm, Mecosta, Ottawa and Newaygo County area.
