NOLA ChristmasFest: A Unique Sponsorship Opportunity

Did you know that NOLA ChristmasFest has sponsorship opportunities available for the 2016 event?

For the past three years this event has grown in leaps and bounds and additional spots have opened for 2016 sponsorships.    We now have availability for businesses that want to take advantage of the opportunity to get onboard a very fast growing family friendly event that is beloved by the New Orleans community.

Why should you sponsor ChristmasFest?

Sponsors receive the ability to put their name out directly in front of the 40,000 attendees from New Orleans and surrounding areas.  There’s a population impact of over 3 million people and those numbers have more than doubled every single year.   Social media impressions are already up over 300 percent between this year and last, meaning that the 40,000 attendees in 2015 is very likely to grow again for 2016.   That’s not a surprise considering that attendance has more than doubled every single year between 2013-2015.

A wonderful family-friendly event.

Often times, sponsors have to worry about the events they are sponsoring being inappropriate or not suitable for their demographic, but there couldn’t be a more appropriate event than ChristmasFest.  It respects the culture of New Orleans, while giving families a place to enjoy each other in a safe, climate controlled, indoor space.  There are a ton of events and activities for everyone and it’s done in the classiest, most wholesome way possible.   Lights and decorations make for a beautiful backdrop for any corporation wishing to put it’s best foot forward.

A huge demographic range between ages, classes, and nearby areas.

ChristmasFest is unique because there are obviously a lot of children who come for the characters, like the Snow Princess, Elves, Nutcracker, Candy Cane Girls, Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, and of course — — Santa Claus himself,  but there are truly events and attractions for the entire family.  Rides like Tilt-a-Whirl and Zero Gravity keep teenagers coming back for more, while inflatables  and the snowball arena amuse toddlers and younger children.  A craft area and boutique is a favorite among adults.   Additionally, live performances have brought in people aged 0 – 100, and with ticket prices being affordable, visitors are from all walks of life.

With the addition last year of our star attraction, the only real ice skating rink in New Orleans, NOLA ChristmasFest actually drew families from as far away as Lake Charles and Mobile, who were willing to drive 4 hours to spend a day on the ice.

Unique opportunities for your business to be featured in ways it hasn’t been before.

Sponsorship opportunities include the ability to put your logo on the massive Jumbotron outside of the Convention Center,  our expertly written press releases and social media articles, and a logo on all collateral materials.

Additionally,  businesses may request to sponsor the character village, craft area, or choose to have their logo in the lobby, or ice skating rink.  There’s no better way to promote your business than with a captive audience of over 40,000 people who are taking photographs and videos, uploading them to social media!

There may also be opportunities for sampling your product or more outside-the-box methods of advertising at ChristmasFest so feel free to contact us with those requests.
