What does it mean to be a sponsor?

C'ville Veggie Fest provides educational and engaging programming and entertainment that celebrates vegetarianism, healthy and earth friendly habits, animal welfare, and delicious food. It provides an outlet for small local businesses, restaurants, and organizations to showcase their products, messages and causes. It’s a great way to connect with our community around health, wellness, compassion, and delicious food!

All sponsors receive a 10x10 exhibitor space at the festival, recognition at the festival, as well as media recognition based on sponsorship level. Read our sponsorship packages brochure for more information about each sponsorship level.
