Corn Fest

Dear Corn Fest supporter:
We are excited for our 2023 fest that will be held Aug. 25-27th in downtown DeKalb. Our festival is always held on the last weekend of August. We are a 501 c (6) non-profit organization that depends on our local businesses to help us continue to make our festival a success. As a sponsor, we have a selection of sponsorship levels for you to choose from. We also work with companies to customize sponsorships to fit their needs. We will again offer sponsors the exclusive chance to advertise on our jumbotron during the festival. Attached you will find all the sponsorship levels as well as jumbotron advertising rates. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. We look forward to working with you to make our 46th year of Corn Fest another great success.

Sincerely,
