Why Sponsor Us

Why does Make Music Van­cou­ver need your sup­port?

Make Music Van­cou­ver is a free event open to all, and we want to keep it free! All the peo­ple mak­ing it hap­pen, from or­ga­niz­ers to mu­si­cians, are vol­un­teers do­nat­ing their time and skills.

We are look­ing for spon­sors to part­ner with us and pro­vide the funds to cover our ex­penses, which in­clude an ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign, tent rental, se­cu­rity, sup­plies etc.

Why spon­sor Make Music Van­cou­ver?

Van­cou­verites love sum­mer music fests, so being as­so­ci­ated with one is a pretty good thing! And this music cel­e­bra­tion is unique: not only is it free, but there’s some­thing in it for every­one since it show­cases a huge num­ber of mu­si­cal gen­res.

So in ad­di­tion to just being a re­ally nice thing to do, spon­sor­ing Make Music Van­cou­ver will pro­vide you with a lot of pos­i­tive ex­po­sure in the com­mu­nity.

Last year’s edi­tion at­tracted 25,000 peo­ple – and this year is going to be big­ger and bet­ter!

As a tes­ta­ment to last year’s suc­cess, the Gas­town Busi­ness Im­prove­ment As­so­ci­a­tion has kindly of­fered to once again pay the fees to have Water Street shut down to traf­fic.

We will also have a co­or­di­nated and pow­er­ful com­mu­ni­ca­tion cam­paign in­clud­ing so­cial media, tra­di­tional media, broad­cast­ing, fly­ers etc. We have also suc­cess­fully ap­plied to two free ad­ver­tis­ing pro­grams pro­vided by the City of Van­cou­ver: Tran­sit Shel­ter ad­ver­tis­ing (posters at 10 tran­sit shel­ters) and Van­cou­ver Live Video Screen (a 10 sec­ond ad shown 144 times/day at the large out­door video screens on Rob­son and Granville); both will run for the 3 weeks pre­ced­ing the event.

We hope you’ll take a look at our Spon­sor­ship_­Pack­age and con­sider part­ner­ing with Make Music Van­cou­ver! We’d love to hear from you and can be reached at sponsorship@​makemusicvancouver.​ca.
