The North Charleston Arts Festival is a highly anticipated arts and culture event offering an excellent promotional and public relations opportunity for businesses seeking media exposure, direct contact with Festival patrons, and a viable contribution to the arts.

Named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society, the annual North Charleston Arts Festival has matured into one of the most comprehensive arts festivals in the state of South Carolina by offering nine days of free and modestly priced performances, workshops, exhibitions, and activities. The festival attracts over 30,000 residents and visitors each year and features over 100 national, regional, and local professional artists, showcasing their talents in a variety of venues, including libraries, community centers, schools, civic auditoriums, and parks. Sponsor contributions allow performances and activities to be presented at little or no cost to the public, helping to uphold the festival’s mission of making unique arts experiences accessible to people of all demographics and economic backgrounds.

Sponsorship opportunities begin at just $250 and offer a variety of marketing benefits to involve your company in a memorable community event. Benefits include on-site marketing opportunities; exposure in local and regional print and broadcast media; visibility on the event website, signage, marketing materials, and apparel; event tickets; discounts on merchandise and art purchases; and more.

Additionally, businesses have the opportunity to have their ad appear  in 40,000 Arts Festival program booklets. Residents and visitors refer to the booklet for details on the fabulous array of programs and activities offered throughout the event, giving businesses a targeted, cost effective medium to reach a broad and captive audience.
