With more than $1.3 million of spending generated on-site, $3 million generated off-site and another $800,000 in tourist dollars flowing into the rest of Alberta as a result of the fabulous four-day event we call folk fest, the words "positive economic impact" seem appropriate.

Thanks to the Government of Alberta’s Community Spirit Donation Grant Program for their matching of individual donor’s charitable contributions to the Calgary Folk Music Festival.
Here's one way you can tell that this is no ordinary festival: there's a waiting list to become one of the 1350 volunteers, many of whom actually take vacation days so as to earn a little more island time.
The good news for you is that, as a sponsor, you can leap to the head of the queue. We're looking for partners who recognize that once Stampede is over, the Calgary Folk Music Festival is the feel-good event of the summer. Without necessarily rocking, it rocks.
There are plenty of ways to display your corporate message: Lots of opportunities for banners and signage. Two large-screen videos provide close-up views of the performers, and can convey other messages. Advertisements in the event's program draw a lot of eyes; what with all of the action going on at the side stages, the booklet is never far from hand. We can also accommodate on-site promotions or other corporate outreach activities.
Bottom Line: One would be hard-pressed to find any annual event that holds such a reservoir of good will. Here's a golden opportunity for your company to stand squarely behind it.
