Perhaps you are looking for a way to highlight your business this summer to a niche community — as in:
Travelers. Foodies. Families. Mainers. Local Businesses. Lobster Lovers!
Any individuals or businesses looking for a great opportunity to give back to Rockland and the Midcoast communities — while getting great exposure— should consider Maine Lobster Festival sponsorships.
We have nine levels of sponsorship from a Steins and Vines category ($300+) all the way up to the Official Sponsor ($10,000+). Sponsors get a pre-set number of banners to highlight their brand logo and announcement-ready copy that will be displayed throughout the Festival. The further up the sponsorship tier you go, the more perks come with the arrangement, such as Facebook and website links, and ad options.
You may opt for a T-shirt sponsorship, tent sponsorship, or event sponsorship. You can even be a guest announcer to one of the Festival’s popular events. Local companies that want another way to sponsor without buying a package can send groups of employees to volunteer. You can also work with the Sponsor Director to customize your own sponsorship package.
Good for the Midcoast
Your sponsorship funds go directly into helping put on the five-day Festival every year, and it’s a two-way street! At the conclusion of every Maine Lobster Festival, your contributions allow us to offer donations to community groups and organizations throughout the year.
For example, this past summer, we were able to bestow a $500 check to the Knox County Gleaners. This amazing organization collects surplus food from farmers and distributes it to food pantries in Knox County.
Good for Your Brand
Sponsors of the Festival are uniquely positioned to have high visibility for the five-day event, noticed by more than 100,000 visitors from around the country and locals. Your business name and logo will be on banners all over the event, including a mention in the Official Maine Lobster Festival Program guide (which many visitors save as a keepsake).
Then, there are the multitude of local connections to consider: Maine’s fishermen, boat builders, marine industries, manufacturers and hospitality industry, along with local banks, oil companies, insurance companies, credit unions, food distributors, car dealerships and media outlets. This is a unique way to get your business name and logo in front of the individuals and businesses you most want to attract.
