Did you know one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Events is located in Forsyth, GA? For more than twenty years, the Forsythia Festival offers handmade arts-and-crafts, toe-tapping entertainment, fun-filled activities for children, enjoyable community events, and delicious food. Each year, the Forsythia Festival promises to be a fantastic event, and we want your business to be a part of all the excitement.
This highly acclaimed festival is the perfect opportunity for your company to introduce themselves to more than 20,000 people over two days. What other promotion can give your business this kind of exposure in such a short amount of time? Our sponsors experience the benefits of marketing and advertising exposure, community outreach and exhibitor opportunities, increased visibility within the community, and more!
In addition to the wide recognition your business will receive, there are also many special “perks” involved with being a Forsythia Festival sponsor. For instance, our festival and petal sponsors receive a booth on festival row and with it, the opportunity to share your company with all the show’s guests.
There are many ways in which partnering with the Forsythia Festival can promote your business from simply donating products to sponsoring a special event.
If you want to partner with us for this year’s Top 20 event, please call (478) 994-9239 or 888-642-4628 and speak with the Program Coordinator, Kari Buckindail.
