Want to be a sponsor?

The City of Ridgefield and Ridgefield First Saturday would like your support for a new festival on First Saturday, September 1, 2018; Ridgefield Multicultural Festival. The festival will “Celebrate Culture at Home and Around the World.” This is an opportunity to showcase the special unity and collectiveness that exist in Ridgefield. The inaugural 2018 festival will be a day of education, celebration, cultural entertainment, children and youth activities and interactive booths celebrating the diversity in our community.

Judging from the success of other Ridgefield First Saturday events such as the big paddle and bird fest, we believe that a Multicultural Festival will also be well attended. Being a sponsor will be a good opportunity to show your support for the community as well as increase visibility for your organization. Your contribution would be used to fund a musical performance such as Chinese Dragons,, a cooking demonstration or class such as arts in motion, and create multicultural experiences that are accessible to people of all ages, abilities, backgrounds and incomes.

There are many sponsorship options. You may choose to be a Partner/”stage” sponsor for Overlook Park, Davis Park or the Community center. If you choose this option, a banner would be displayed at the location with your logo and all marketing materials would include your company name and logo as the stage sponsor for that location. You may also choose to be a general sponsor for the event. The event sponsorship levels are below.

The funds will be used to make this event possible, and a potion of the proceeds will go to the Ridgefield Lion’s Club to support all that the Club does for the community, Your check can be made to the City of Ridgefield or directly to Ridgefield Lion’s Club, All check should be delivered to : Ridgefield City Hall at 230 Pioneer Street, P.O. Box 608, Ridgefield, WA 98642. The truly will be a memorable event for all who attend, and we hope you can join the celebration as our sponsor. Thank you in advance for your kind consideration and support.
