Sponsors

Be a part of the excitement and support the local arts and music community by sponsoring the fourth annual Arts & Drafts Summer Music & Arts Festival on Saturday, June 22 through Sunday, June 23. By supporting this unique event produced by the Baltimore County Arts Guild (BCAG), you or your company can contribute to BCAG’s mission of supporting artists and the artist communities in our area.

7,000+ Festival goers are expected at this year’s event. This is an exclusive opportunity to reach Baltimore County and regional consumers that attend to purchase artist and vendor products, engage with sponsors and learn about their companies, listen to music, and enjoy the many activities planned by BCAG, Guinness Open Gate Brewery, and our sponsors.

The marketing power of Guinness Open Gate Brewery and BCAG will reach thousands of consumers several months before the Festival and the new and enhanced Arts & Drafts Festival website will showcase sponsors and artists before, during, and for months after the Festival.

There are limited sponsor booths available at the Festival, and other sponsorship opportunities that will get your brand in front of consumers across the entire region.

Your contribution as an exhibitor or sustaining sponsor will associate your brand with the mission of BCAG to help communities thrive through the transformative power of art and music and ensure that art in its many forms is accessible to everyone in the Baltimore County community and throughout the DMV region – during the Festival and throughout the year!
