Event Sponsorship Opportunities

If you or your company are interested in being a part of one of our special events, we have sponsorship packages available to fit any budget.

We host five regional and nationally known festivals each year. These events draw visitors from Lenexa, the Kansas City area and the region. Collectively, these festivals draw approximately 50,000 people each year. We also host more than a dozen other special events each year.
