How to Sponsor

Letter from the Sun Festival Society

Dear Friends,

The Tsawwassen Sun Festival Committee is pleased to bring you sponsorship opportunities for the annual Tsawwassen Sun Festival taking place on the BC Day August weekend from August 4 – 6, 2018 marks the 46th year and planning has begun to celebrate “Farm to Table”!

Over the past 45 years, the Sun Festival has become a fun tradition celebrated by generations of Tsawwassen residents. Although each year the festival has a new theme, its main objective is to gather people in a joint family-fun celebration while working in partnership with the businesses, community and non-profit organizations such as the Lions Club and the Rotary Club of Tsawwassen in the promotion of growth in our community. We’re proud to say, that despite our growth, our primary goal remains the same: to unite our vibrant community with family fun activities.

Each year the Festival grows into an extraordinarily high spirited celebration. The festival begins with a 3-day ball tournament now in its 36th year, Beer Garden, Skateboard Competition, Volleyball Tournament and an Antique Show, that bring in participants giving the business community an opportunity to increase visibility & sales. The festival starts off with a Volleyball Tournament, Skateboard Competition, BINGO, and Drive In Movie. On Monday, the day starts with a Parade along 56th Street hosted by the Tsawwassen Rotary Club and Winskill Park is full of activities with the Car Show, Lions Club Pancake Breakfast & Beer Garden, Ball Tournament Finals, Marketplace, Kids Funzone & Midway, Petting Zoo, Men in Black, and Delta Gymnastics. Food vendors, Stage Entertainment, BINGO and the popular Pie Eating contest round up the three day
festival.

As a non-profit society, the Tsawwassen Sun Festival Society puts together this event while relying heavily on the generosity of the business community to assist with its funding. With this in mind, we are seeking your continued support as a Sponsor. We ask that you consider the sponsorship package with in-kind sponsorship or a cash contribution.

The Tsawwassen Sun Festival Society recognizes our sponsors as an integral part of our success and is committed to ensuring all our sponsors are properly acknowledged. We offer a number of options depending on the level of sponsorship, including recognition at our festival and in our media coverage.

Thank you in advance for considering to support the Tsawwassen Sun Festival as we celebrate 46 years in the community bringing family, friends, and the community together. If you require further information please contact the coordinator by phone 604-220-2147 or anytime by email at tsunfestival@gmail.com.

Please note: Deadline for placement of your logo on our rack card that is distributed in Tsawwassen and Ladner is May 31, 2018. Please provide your commitment and logo before this date.

We look forward to hearing back from you.

Sincerely,

Elaine Campbell
Sun Festival Coordinator, on behalf of the Tsawwassen Sun Festival Society
