Become a Sponsor
Dear Prospective Sponsor,
175 years ago a small band of farmers, educators, merchants, and factory operators got together to form the Saratoga County Agricultural Society, whose purpose was “to showcase the best in Saratoga County Agriculture and Home Manufacture”. We are still at it nearly two centuries later. The budget for the first Saratoga County Fair was $300. A LOT has changed since then....
To operate a successful County Fair, as we have since 1841, it takes support from businesses, organi- zations, and individuals who believe in what we do, and the way in which we do it.
The Saratoga County Agricultural Society is a registered and approved IRS 501(c)3 not for profit, and the oldest major visitor attraction in Saratoga County. Ninety percent of the work done by the Society is done by volunteer Directors, Ad-Hocs, and Department Supervisors, who donate time, energy, ma- terials, (and their own money) to accomplish the Mission Statement above. But it takes more.......
Opportunities to support what we do in the form of sponsorship can be found at all levels, and in every corner of the Fairgrounds. Entertainment areas; education, conservation, home arts and crafts, culi- nary and antiques departments; competitive exhibits in livestock, produce, and flowers, and visitor ser- vices all offer marketing visibility and let the attending public know that you support their interests.
We built three new exhibition buildings in 2015, and we are happy to announce that the Adirondack Trust Company was the first to support that project by taking the naming rights to the new Horse Barn. Beginning this year, and continuing until 2020, that structure will be known as the Adirondack Trust Stables, and their sponsorship will be displayed not only at Fair time, but through all the many events held on the Saratoga County Fairgrounds all year long, in front of over 150,000 visitors annually.
We still have naming rights available to two other new buildings, also offered in five year cycles, with the contracts offered at $25,000 each. Your corporate logo will be prominently displayed over the en- trances, with a statement expressing our gratitude for your investment in our mission. In addition, the .................... Building will be referred to by name in all marketing of Fair Week activities in all our marketing.
The 175th Saratoga County Fair will take place from July 19th to the 24th, 2016. The options offered in this Sponsorship Package make it possible for us to entertain, educate, fascinate, and create connec- tions, all while making memories for our thousands of friends and visitors. Please consider joining our family of sponsors, and sharing in those memories.
