Carnival rides, street stalls, a street parade, live music and family entertainment will be sure to attract big crowds from 3 November to 12 November when Campbelltown celebrates the annual Festival of Fisher’s Ghost.
A range of sponsorship opportunities are currently available for Campbelltown’s largest and longest running community event, which this year promises an exciting revamped program including a colourful and vibrant Twilight Street Parade along Queen Street.
Campbelltown City Council is calling on businesses and the wider community to support the event, now in its 62nd year, and sponsorship opportunities include: Festival Grand Champion, $8,000; Festival and Parade Partner, $6,000; Fireworks Sponsor, $4,000; Live Stage Sponsor, $2,000; and Friend of the Festival, $500 minimum.
Benefits include generous business exposure through a variety of channels, including radio advertising, posters, Council’s website and Facebook, invitations to the Festival of Fisher’s Ghost afternoon tea, and VIP seating at the street parade.
Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, said sponsors contributed to the success of the popular festival which attracted crowds of up to 100,000 people over the two weeks of activities, primarily families, year in and year out.
“Our much-loved festival is our city’s opportunity to shine, and this year’s program sees the return of fun-filled favourites, including the carnival at Bradbury Park, Fisher’s Gig, and the fun run, in addition to new events and a new-look street parade and street fair,” he said.
“The excitement of the revamped program is sure to attract new visitors and seasoned festivalgoers alike, and I would encourage local businesses to take the opportunity to not only support their local community but to boost the profile of their business.”
Expressions of interest close on Friday 22 September.
