The Festival’s built -in viral expansion loop enables Sponsors to leverage digital and social media to extend your reach and support your activation platforms.
With attendance of over 200,000 visitors, Sponsorship provides you with an opportunity to increase lead generation and expand your one-on-one marketing to our captive audience.
We are a not for profit association that believes in building tourism and the community. We are charitable with the funds we raise and we select 4 charities each year to partner with during the festival. This year we have selected The Ryan Wells Foundation/Pinellas County Culinary Programs, The American Heart Association, The Lupas Foundation and Pets and Vets USA.
