COLUMBIA EVE FEST, INC.  – SPONSORSHIP REPLY FORM Deadline for guaranteed logo/name inclusion on promotional materials: October 15, 2015

Dear Friends, “Columbia Eve Fest, Inc.” is a not-for-profit, family friendly festival that takes place on New Year’s Eve.  Columbia Eve Fest will be held in The District in the closed off block of 9th street between Elm and Locust. We have compacted the festival into a “block party” footprint. We believe this will be more participant friendly in regard to challenging weather conditions.

The 5K Run/Walk will be starting at 4:00 p.m. in front of Cyclextreme. The other venues featuring a wide variety of entertainment and activities will be located in the Missouri Theatre (2), the 9th street stage and Food Truck Cafe and the Missouri  United Methodist Church (7 venues). In the closed off block of 9th street located between Elm and Locust, we will utilize the closed street as a convenient, safe path for participants and an outdoor venue featuring lots of fun activities and the Grand Finale at midnight with entertainment and a countdown into 2015. If the weather is hazardous, we will move the the Grand Finale into the Missouri Theatre.

Columbia Eve Fest provides a family-friendly, safe and healthy, multi-generational, alcohol-free alternative. It promotes healthy lifestyles, helps to build community spirit, promotes the arts, and showcases music and other entertainment for our mid-Missouri community. Admission to Eve Fest venues is accessed by purchasing buttons at a reasonable cost, and/or accessing free activities, such as the the finales.

Thanks to our generous supporters and sponsors, we are able to keep admission affordable, and we distribute free admission passes annually to nonprofit organizations that disseminate these to lower income families, people with disabilities, at-risk youth, the homeless and individuals in recovery from alcohol and other drugs. Columbia Eve Fest promises to be an exciting event for our community! We have a great line up of entertainers and are eager to work with you to bring a great, family friendly, New Year’s Eve celebration to mid-Missouri with your help! Please review the sponsorship packet and consider participating with our Columbia Eve Fest family by sponsoring Columbia Eve Fest, Inc.
