This fall the City of Milton and Crabapple Community Association (CCA) will team up to bring Milton the biggest fall festival it has ever seen, Crabapple Fest, and limited sponsorship opportunities are now available for local businesses.
The Crabapple Fest sponsorship/vendor packet is now available online and includes everything potential sponsors and vendors need. To download the packet immediately, click here.
The packet is also available on the Crabapple Fest's official Web site, www.crabapplefest.com. As vendors and sponsors come in, their names, logos and links to their Web sites will be added.
Crabapple Fest, held Oct. 5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in historic downtown Crabapple, will see the City of Milton and CCA combine their two popular events - the 5,000-person Milton Roundup and 10,000-person Crossroads at Crabapple Antique and Arts Festival - into one massive destination festival.
The best from each event will greet the community, including: antiques and art from hundreds of juried vendors; a music and entertainment stage with local and touring acts; games, rides and activities for kids; and, for the first time, beer and wine in the festival grounds.
Organizers expect at least 10,000 residents, so if you are a local business owner, you want to be a part of the festivities.
There are four levels of sponsorship: Platinum ($5,000), Gold ($2,500) Silver ($1,000) and Bronze ($500). Each features its own perks, including company logo placement on all event banners, advertisements and staff T-shirts, prime booth space and links to your organization from the City of Milton's Web site. Please note, however, that specific inclusion and logo placement are based on sponsorship level.
To assure names and logos are included in promotional advertising, sponsors must be in by Aug. 25. Sponsorships will be taken after this date; however, they will only be added to advertisements scheduled after their approval.
Additionally, CCA is accepting vendor applications. If you are interested in taking part, visit www.crabapplecommunityassociation.org, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Amanda Quintana at 770-241-1125.
Organizers are looking for 19th century American Country furniture, primitive antiques, shabby chic items and unique pieces of art in all mediums - oils, photography, jewelry, textiles, pottery and quilts. Spaces are limited, so apply early.
Vendor fees are tax deductible as the Crabapple Community Association is a chartered, non-profit organization. Proceeds benefit local community programs, scholarships and non-profit charities.
For any information on the festival, please contact Angela Thompson, special events and projects manager for the City of Milton, at 678-242-2530 or email@example.com.
