A show sponsorship is a great way to support Big Top, receive unique promotional opportunities, and enjoy a one-of-a-kind show experience!
A show sponsorship can be used to promote your business, honor a loved one, recognize an achievement, or celebrate a reunion of family or friends. Sponsorships help offset the artist fees and performance costs and give unique marketing opportunities to business’. Your support is important to Big Top Chautauqua’s ability to bring diverse performers to the tent stage.
Sponsorship benefits include VIP tickets, recognition in print pieces and online, and special perks like autographed concert posters and entertaining opportunities.
