Sponsorship Letter 2022

The Greater Derry Arts Council with the cooperation of the Town of Derry is happy to be back at MacGregor Park on September 17, 2022 from 10 am to 4 pm.  We will be bringing back great food, vendors and entertainment to kick off the fall season in Derry.
We would like to thank you for your former sponsorship and hope that you will consider staying on with us again this year.  We do have a few changes to the sponsorship levels and how they will be displayed.  We are offering additional sponsorship levels this year.
This year we will be looking for specific sponsors including the Climbing Wall, Kids Games, Greater Derry’s Got Talent Sponsor and Food Tent.  If you choose to sponsor an area your banner will be displayed in that section of the park.  We are also looking for Entertainment sponsors which will include the Balloon Artist and Wildlife Encounters area. 
Our Platinum through Bronze sponsors will be continued to be displayed on our display area in the park next to the stage. 
Not only is Derryfest a lot of fun, but it’s also a great opportunity for local businesses like yours to get out and meet the citizens of Greater Derry face-to-face, help grow your customer base, and increase consumer awareness! It also gives businesses a chance to demonstrate some goodwill by giving back to our wonderful community. That kind of cooperative spirit is generally regarded as the best kind of publicity and is long remembered and appreciated by the public.
We are looking for local businesses and neighbors like you to help us defray the cost of producing Derryfest by becoming a sponsor this year.
The Greater Derry Arts Council is the producer of Derryfest and is a recognized 501(c)3 organization. What’s even better is that any proceeds from producing Derryfest go to support the Greater Derry Arts Council. Our mission is to promote Public Arts in our community and we are honored to be responsible for managing and maintaining the historic Derry Opera House located in downtown Derry.
Please see the Chart below for the different levels of sponsors.  If you have any questions at all, please reach out and we will be happy to answer them for you. 
Specific areas will be a first come first serve to sponsor and if your choice is taken, we will offer you the next available area for your review and decision.
All the levels are important, and we need everyone’s assistance to make a great day happen.
