HELP US CELEBRATE 10 YEARS AND SUPPORT THE FESTIVAL 

Now in its 10th year, Salem Arts Festival 2018 brings together Salem Main Streets and the Creative Collective - the organization behind Creative Salem/Creative North Shore - to shine a light on arts and culture in and around Salem

Sponsorship Benefits:

Set in the heart of Salem, Salem Arts Festival offers numerous sponsor benefits:

  • Opportunity to generate buzz and create awareness for your business to a diverse audience during the three day Festival.
  • Multimedia integration ensures your brand reaches customers at multiple touch points and over several months in time (print, web, signage, collateral, social media, etc.)
  • Exposure to tens of thousands of local individuals appreciative of your support of a more creative economy

To support the festival or if you have any questions that need to be answered please contact robyn@creativesalem.com

Sponsorship of the Salem Arts Festival supports all facets of the weekend long event. From supporting the work of more than 150 artists and performers, to keeping this family-friendly event free and open to 6,000 North Shore residents, sponsorship of the Salem Arts Festival is a powerful way to support our local creative economy and activate downtown Salem with vibrant, eclectic, and socially-conscious art and culture.

In addition to sponsoring Salem Arts Festival itself, there are two unique opportunities for your business to make an incredible difference in the Festival - and Salem’s cultural community.

One exclusive sponsor can invest in the Salem Arts Festival Fashion Show Fundraiser -  a night of local food, fashion, drink, dancing, and fun in support of one of Salem’s greatest festivals!

New this year is one exclusive sponsorship of the annual reception celebration: an evening of open air celebration, music, dancing, drinks, and the opening of the main gallery at Old Town Hall.  This reception is one of the major highlights of the Festival.

Online reach across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter includes postings to social media accounts for Salem Arts Festival, Salem Main Streets, and Creative North Shore.

  • Average weekly combined social reach 50K
  • Newsletter reach 5k subscribers with an open rate average of 30%

A NOTE FROM MAYOR KIMBERLEY DRISCOLL

Thank you for considering financially supporting the 10th anniversary of Salem Arts Festival!  Salem Arts Festival promotes our vibrant downtown, which is nestled right in the heart of one of America’s most culturally active historic port cities with opportunities to highlight the existing local artist community while encouraging thousands of participants to engage in the arts.

Last year the Salem Arts Festival attracted over 6000 visitors from all over the world engaging participants of diverse backgrounds and ages. During the festival over 200 artists, performers and creatives share, promote, and sell their creations. 

Proudly celebrating 10 years, the Salem Arts Festival celebrates the arts in all its forms: painting, photography, sculpture, installation, dance, music, film, new media, performance, theater, poetry, culinary, visual art, and more. This year’s festival will consist of the community art project ” Bee to Brick”, a gallery of juried artists’ work in Old Town Hall, performances at multiple outdoor stage venues, a mural slam, indoor performances, a street fair, and opportunities for the community to actively participate in the arts. 

Organized by Salem Main Streets and the Creative Collective (formerly Creative Salem)  and dozens of dedicated volunteers, the Arts Festival supports and boosts our downtown, the surrounding businesses, and contributes to Salem being a vibrant, year-round, retail, dining, and cultural designation. Salem Arts Festival is made possible because of the continued support of local businesses and invested patrons and as the festival grows that support becomes even more critical. 

Whether you are a considering becoming a new supporter or a returning partner - thank you. I look forward to seeing you downtown June 1, 2, and 3!

Sincerely,

Kimberley Driscoll

Mayor
