Sponsors
 
 
Opportunities for sponsorships on several levels are available to get your organization’s name before the public. This event has drawn over 6,000 attendees and prospective customers in years past and the festival will be even larger and more heavily promoted this year. Special incentives are available to those who sponsor to help you meet your promotion and advertising goals in the coming years.
The majority of the proceeds from this year's festival will go towards helping to develop and finish the hiking/biking path from Riverside Park in Spruce Pine to the Blue Ridge Parkway, along the historic Overmountain Victory Trail. This trail work is in partnership with Toe River Valley Watch and the National Park Service.
