Are you excited by all the new things happening in Downtown Garner?  Help us keep the momentum going in 2017!

We’re excited to announce the launch of our first Annual Sponsor Drive for Downtown Garner.

Did you enjoy one of our new Pop Up Markets or Outdoor Movie Nights in last year?  Financial support from our sponsors helps fund events & programming in downtown – support from Garner’s business community sustains our food truck rodeos, pop up markets, & outdoor movie series.

Sponsoring our annual schedule of events is a great way to promote your business to Garner’s growing community of families, young professionals, and active retirees while helping draw attention to our downtown revitalization efforts.

As a 2017 sponsor, your business gets even more exposure – a great value for limited marketing budgets!

With a wide range of affordable sponsorship levels, your business will be seen by up to 9,000 people in person at Downtown Garner events.  Online and print event promotions will reach an estimated audience of up to 225,000 throughout 2017.

Sponsorship donations are tax-deductible for individuals and businesses.  

The Garner Revitalization Association (GRA), responsible for overseeing events and economic revitalization in Downtown Garner, is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Sponsors will receive a donor acknowledgement letter at the end of 2017 in thanks for their financial support of Downtown Garner.
