Foothills Food Festival 2020 Sponsorship
Planning is underway for the fourth annual Foothills Food Festival. Your business is invited to sponsor this high profile event being held in downtown Norway on August 8th, 2020. The past two years have seen a strong turnout with close to a 1500 visitors enjoying local foods from food vendors and farmers, as well as live music, educational programming, local beer tasting, and more. 2020 is shaping up to be even bigger and more exciting with more vendors, educators, and farmers.
The goals of this event are to:
Celebrate the diversity and flavor of local foods grown in western Maine, and the farmers and producers who create them
Promote the development of a more diverse and robust local food economy to increase regional food security, create local jobs, support community health, and reduce the carbon footprint of our food
Educate the public about sustainable alternatives to the global industrial food system
Create community around food
Build a regional identity related to food and farming
How will your sponsorship dollars be used?
The Festival is free for all visitors, food producers and other exhibitors. Your sponsorship helps cover anticipated expenses that include liability insurance, town application fees, marketing and printed materials, live music, biodegradable utensils, plates, bowls, cups and trash bags, as well as tent rentals, port-a-potty rentals, electrical and water, and everything else it takes to bring an event of this scope to life.
