The 6th Annual Newport Celtic Festival & Highland Games is now accepting sponsorship selections with our new, 2016 Sponsor Package!
As many of you know, we offer an outstanding bundle of benefits to our sponsors with fantastic marketing through the power of our media partners. our internationally followed social media and our e-mail subscribers.
We take good care of our sponsors because they take good care of us!
You may have already heard that the festival is moving to Toledo’s Memorial Field this year due to the windy weather conditions at the fairgrounds. Many of our vendors, who make their living doing events like ours, lost their tents and we had to make a very tough decision. But it was important to them, and therefore, it was important to us.
Over the years, your support has helped us to bring this event to the community and 60% of those who attended traveled from out of county to be here. We even have a “Coast to Valley” shuttle especially routed to the venue.
There will still be the Kilted Run on Nye Beach and the festival’s name will remain the same. We have also invited “Circles in the Sand” to create a Celtic themed labyrinth on one of the Newport beaches.
Even with the move to Toledo, its small town nature and lack of lodging means the vast majority of attendees will still be staying and playing in Newport while they enjoy three days of events and activities around the 6th Annual Newport Celtic Festival & Highland Games just 7 miles inland.
Since we began, Our combined efforts have led to an influx of over $2 million that has gone right back into lodging, retail, fuel, restaurants and more. As a result, our local Economic Development is improving and, if you take advantage of the fact that we are members of the Oregon Cultural Trust, you are also doubling your donation and supporting arts and culture in Oregon.
We appreciate your continued support and ask you to make your sponsorship selections by April 30, 2016.
