Thanks for your interest in our sponsorship program.
The Arts and Crafts section of Kempenfest does not admit commercial businesses. The only way for commercial businesses to partner with Kempenfest is via the Sponsorship Program, which provides opportunities ranging from site space only, to title sponsorship of elements within Kempenfest. There also limited opportunities for advertising only sponsorships.
Note, the following categories have exclusive agreements in place: Banking, Financial Planning, Commercial Gaming, BBQs, and Real Estate. No other sponsors are permitted in these categories. Sorry to disappoint you.
Sponsorship including Site Space - Load-In/Out, Activation Days and Hours
Load-in day is Friday August 4, 7am-5pm. Some larger activations may require a Thursday load-in for proper positioning without other sponsors being set up first. Sponsors must activate Saturday August 5 through Monday August 7, 10am to 6pm daily. Optional hours of activation - Friday August 4 through Sunday August 6 - 6pm to 8pm. Load-out is Monday August 7, after 6pm, or Tuesday August 8, 8am-5pm.
