Sponsorship Opportunities

Presenting Sponsor $10,000

The Ithaca Festival is the most well attended community arts festival in Central New York. More than 10,000 people attend each day of the Festival. Ithacans look forward all year to the Ithaca Festival and really come out in numbers to show their community spirit and share their creativity and talent. Meanwhile, many who have left Ithaca return to a community that always welcomes them home. What a great way to present your business as being deep in the heart of our community and supporting the arts.
