Belknap Fall Festival 2013 - Louisville, KY - Sponsorship Opportunities

Held every 2nd Friday and Saturday in October, the Belknap Fall Festival is a smart way for local businesses to engage in the community and get in front of one of the largest gatherings of homeowners and residents in the Louisville Highlands. An estimated 15,000 Highlanders are expected to participate in this year’s two-day celebration of arts, music, family fun, local food and booths by local businesses and nonprofit groups. The festival is a unique opportunity to promote your brand’s product or service to a large group of actively engaged Highland homeowners and residents.

The 19th Belknap Fall Festival will be held Friday, October 11th and Saturday, October 12th, 2013 in the Historic Douglass Loop.  The Belknap Fall Festival is part of the 2013 Metrofest Calendar of Outdoor Festivals and Events and part of the Week In The Highlands.  The festival is community spirited, family-centered, and includes over 100 booths of juried arts & crafts, educational exhibits, food from local eateries / food trucks, and a family fun area.  There is live music on the stage all day.  This festival draws a diverse crowd of all ages.  Admission is free.

The Fall Festival is organized and staffed by a core team of dedicated neighborhood volunteers. Sponsorship funds are applied directly to the expense of holding and marketing the Festival.  Proceeds from the Belknap Fall Festival go to support the Belknap Neighborhood Association, a 501c4 non-profit organization. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2013, this organization is dedicated to protecting, preserving and improving the historic Belknap Neighborhood. The proceeds from the Fall Festival are used for neighborhood improvements such as the recent tree planting / canopy expansion project.

The Belknap Neighborhood is one of the largest neighborhoods in the Louisville Highlands and was recognized by Louisville Magazine in 2010, as one of the most livable and lovable neighborhoods in Metro Louisville. Home to Lakeside Swim Club and Hal Warheim park, the neighborhood is considered to be one of the most walkable in the city of Louisville – encouraging residents to support local businesses. Belknap’s demographics make it a smart neighborhood to invest your sponsorship and advertising dollars. According to the 2010 U.S. Census, the area’s population is highly educated with 57.8% of the population holding a college degree and average household income is $91,000.
