The Facts:

For over 35 years, Pelham Art Festival has provided a vital link between the visual arts and the local community by welcoming artists from the Niagara Region and across Ontario. We offer our sponsors an opportunity to support Southern Ontario’s Premiere Spring Art Festival through a highly visible, cost effective marketing brand experience.

We offer a successful & comprehensive marketing campaign: Benefit from our multi-platform marketing and promotions which resulted in a total of 2.5 million media impressions from 2021’s campaign. Our social media portion of the total ad campaign reached 38,159 people, resulting in 82,361 media impressions. We've experienced great online growth and expect an even more expansive 2022 reach. Plus, additional opportunity to be spotlighted through our social media channels on Facebook and Instagram with an engaged audience continues to grow.

The Art Festival presence enriches Pelham and surrounding communities; developing awareness of our creativity, our cultural diversity, and draws many visitors to Niagara. Volunteers organize the annual event and artists donate 15% of their total sales to festival fundraising efforts.

The Figures:

  • 80+ Artist In-Person Festivals
  • 60+ Artist Online Festival 2021
  • 2500+ Visitors
  • $3.8 million is our total economic impact

The In-Person Festival:

Festival goers enjoy live music, catered food, family activities and as well, stunning work from juried artists. It’s a difference that keeps art lovers coming back, along with knowing that their participation helps the community.

Our Sponsors:

Our sponsors can expect extensive social media, newspaper and radio advertising promotion. Your logo and link will appear prominently on our website. And both the web and social media presence continues after the festival.

Sponsoring the Pelham Art Festival allows you to nurture the careers of artists and enrich the lives of all who attend. Sponsors assist festival expense coverage, and our fundraising allows annual donations to continue to be made to Pelham Libraries, arts scholarships to Pelham graduating students of E.L. Crossley Secondary School, to Notre Dame College School, to Pelham students enrolled in the Art and Design Program at Niagara College, and to community arts projects.

Your company can directly interact with our large public and online audience, just as our artists do. When you partner with Pelham Art Festival, at a level of your own choice, you benefit from our valuable and targeted marketing campaigns and activation opportunities.
