The heart of the Festival is our volunteers and we rely on them to design beautifully decorated trees, wreaths, centrepieces & gingerbread houses for sale to the public. We have a dedicated volunteer crew who help with recruitment, staging, programming, logistics, construction, photography, set up/take down and delivery. As the presenting sponsor, we'll include your logo in communications with volunteers. Opportunities exist to promote your brand on volunteer items such as t-shirts, lanyards and ID badges. Contact us for details.
Online 50/50 Raffle
The chance to win is almost irresistible to our supporters. An online 50/50 raffle allows ticket sales at in-person events and beyond, maximizing revenue and exposure. New this year, tickets may be purchased throughout Saskatchewan, rather than Saskatoon & area. Sales are planned from late September through November. We'll include your logo as the presenting sponsor on the Festival's website, 50/50 sales website, email and social media promotions. Your support will be included too in media advisories & communications.
We let the people decide. In this online contest, the public votes on their favourite decorated tree, wreath, centrepiece and gingerbread displays. Participants may vote once per day November 19 to 27. Voting is done through a form on the Festival's website, but will be promoted via email, social media and on our website. We'll include your logo as the presenting sponsor and your support will be included in media advisories. There’s an opportunity to provide your branded swag as prizes to the winning designers.
Gingerbread cookies are an irresistible holiday tradition at the Festival. These tasty treats evoke warm memories as the senses delight in the aroma and flavour of this classic Christmas cookie. Whether selling at the Gingerbread Cookie Hut in-person or through a pre-sale with drive-thru pick up, these cookies are highly sought after with thousands sold each year. We'll include your logo as the presenting sponsor on our website, email and social media promotions. Your support will be included too in media advisories & communications.
Decorated trees, wreaths, centrepieces and gingerbread houses are the crown jewel of the Festival. Each display is crafted by our talented designers, who showcase their incredible creativity year after year. These fabulous displays are priced and sold to the public. Your logo will be featured as the presenting sponsor and included in our website, email and social media promotions plus your support mentioned in media advisories & communications.
Production & Staging
There's a lot that happens behind the scenes to make the Festival happen. This sponsorship covers lighting, staging, props, materials, set up, take down and just about every other thing needed to make the Festival come to life. There's hundreds of feet of extension cords, a mountain of power bars, piles of linen and countless props used. Sponsorship of this area includes a behind the scenes guided tour for your company or guests of your choice.
