All categories of sponsorship can be achieved with either cash, gifts in-kind that can be used by Folk Harbour (for example in our raffles or in the administration of our activities) or a combination.
To join our growing and supportive family of sponsors, please contact the office.
PATRON ($10,000 and higher):
The goal of the Patron sponsorship is to show leadership in the support of the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society with paramount recognition both at the annual Folk Harbour Festival and year round as core sponsors of the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society Festival, Monthly Concert Series, Bandstand Series and other special events.
ADMIRAL ($5,000 – $9,999):
The goal of Admiral sponsorship is to show support for Mainstage Headline Acts during the annual Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival. Nightly concerts in the Mainstage Tent build steadily toward the days headliners making this a very high profile sponsorship. Admiral sponsors also support the Society all year round as sponsors of the Monthly Concert Series and Bandstand Series and other special events.
COMMODORE ($2,500 – $4,999):
Commodore sponsors support for specific events or venues during the annual Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival. Festival Venues that may be sponsored at this level include the Wharf, Churches and Church Halls, Bandstand and other daytime sites but do not include the Mainstage Site (Admiral or Patron Level). Events that may be sponsored include the Ken Matheson Program, Greening, Workshops and Talks, the Folksteps Conference, Children’s Activities and other Festival Activities.
SKIPPER ($1,000 – $2,499):
The goal of Skipper sponsorship is to show support for the annual concert series presented by the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society. Two series will be operated in 2013: the summer Bandstand Series and the monthly Concert Series. The Bandstand Series consists of ten free, summer concerts presented on Sunday afternoons from June to September at the Lunenburg Heritage Bandstand. The Concert Series presents reasonably priced Saturday evening concerts each month from September to June, usually at Lunenburg’s Pearl Theatre.
FIRST MATE ($300 – $999):
First Mate sponsors are identified with the support of a specific performer or workshop during the annual Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival.
CREW (Under $300):
Crew sponsors are those who provide cash or gifts under $300. Their support is greatly appreciated and acknowledged in the annual Festival Guide and on the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society website.
