As as sponsor of the Decatur Celebration, you have a unique opportunity to create an emotional bond with consumers by providing an unforgettable family festival experience that is affordable, safe, diverse and enjoyable.

Over 75 area businesses contribute nearly $300,000 annually to the Decatur Celebration.  Some do so because they feel a responsibility to support quality of life in our community, others to take advantage of the unmatched marketing opportunities including merchandising, business-to-business networking, lead generation, high-profile advertising, sampling, media tie-ins, and major visibility.

Whether for quality of life or advertising, our sponsors are appreciated by the hundreds of thousands of festival fans who walk by their sponsored stage or attraction at the festival.  That’s the magic of tying your brand in to an experience that people are truly passionate about!


Although logo placement is a key element of any marketing plan, the days of simply slapping your name on a banner and calling it advertising are over.  Consumers are inundated with 3,000 impressions each day and it’s imperative that you stand out.  That’s why we offer a variety of customizable ways to weave your brand in to the festival.  Here are just a few examples:

  • Are you targeting young families? Consider sponsoring one of our many family fun activities such as Kids Block or the Carnival.  Then have your employees spend time volunteering in your sponsored area wearing company t-shirts.
  • Sponsor a stage that has a music format that appeals to your target market. Then take the opportunity to MC a show to get your face in front of that audience with your logo.
  • Set up an interactive booth where customers can experience your product first hand.
  • Provide prizes for festival competitions.

Each sponsorship level comes with benefits that can also be used as employee perks or marketing tools.
