Cowtown Indie Bazaar: Be A Sponsor

DIY Culture is alive and well in Fort Worth, Texas!

We are looking for like-minded businesses to sponsor the Cowtown Indie Bazaar with us.  Do you own a local business?  If so, this was written for you.  
At Etsy Fort Worth, we believe in our community.  We are a group of volunteers and artists, spreading the word about the benefits of buying handmade goods, supporting independent artists, and shopping local to keep grass-roots commerce alive.
The Cowtown Indie Bazaar (CIB) arose out of our commitment to the community of artists and craftsmen.  CIB is a semi-annual handmade craft show that is the only event of its kind produced solely by artists, with all proceeds staying in the community to support the handmade arts and local charities.  Admission is free to the public, and it’s an event that the whole family can enjoy.

Our next show will be held October 15th at the Will Rogers Memorial Center, and we’d like to include your business as an event sponsor.  We have a variety of sponsorships available to fit any budget, including the option to participate for free in our goody bags.

We hosted over 90 artists and craftsmen and over 2,000 shoppers at our spring show, and expect our attendance to grow as we become a fixture in the Texas craft show circuit.  Our reputation as a quality show with friendly staff and great crowds of shoppers is growing as well.  Crowds of people line up hours before the doors open to be one of the first 50 people through the door, to receive our exclusive “goody bags” full of handmade items and coupons!

As a sponsor, you’d be reaching thousands of people who are keyed in to the DIY culture.  Our shoppers are not only admirers of hand-made art, they are often crafters themselves.   Etsy Fort Worth also boasts a thriving social network of bloggers, a Facebook page, twitter account, website, and a newsletter that reaches over one thousand subscribers.
To become a sponsor, please fill out the sponsorship form on our web site. The deadline for sponsorship applications is  September 15, so don’t delay! 
Thank you Kay for leading our Sponsorship team!
