It’s that time of year again when we start planning for this year’s Fair. It may seem like that we are rushing, but it takes months of preparation to get everything ready. This will be the 73rd year of the Crawford County Fair at its present location. We work hard to make each year more successful than the last.

Each year millions of visitors attend Pennsylvania Fairs because of the quality of exhibits, products, competitions, educational opportunities, and the exciting range of entertainment Fairs have to offer. Our eight-day fair highlights the hard work of our 4-H and FFA members. The Crawford County Fair prides itself in showcasing Crawford County and Pennsylvania’s Number One Industry – Agriculture.

If you would like to get involved with the Fair as a sponsor, or be a volunteer, NOW is the time to contact the Fair office. Your sponsorship gives you exposure to +/- 125,000 people over the eight days of the Fair. You can submit the contact form, call the Fair Office at 814-333-7465 or email Shelby Proctor, Executive Secretary for additional information at sproctor@co.crawford.pa.us

Sponsorship

We are looking for sponsors to join the fun and participate in the 2018, 73rd Annual Crawford County Fair. Sponsors contribute to the promotion of the Fair, entertainment, events support, and exhibit premiums. We count on the support of sponsors for the on-going future and success of the Fair.

Event marketing is quickly becoming the wave of the future. People want to be participants, not consumers. They want to feel good about their purchase and they want to support brands that support their values and ideals.

Sponsorship offers a chance for people to connect – not just brands to people, but people to people and to their communities. Our mission is to know exactly what would be most beneficial to your company and to find an opportunity that best accomplishes that goal. Having an idea of what your company’s objectives are will help us to get started.

Why Sponsor?

Sponsorship of the Crawford County Fair not only gets your name in front of potential customers, it gives you benefits to fit your needs and wants:

  • Maximum exposure – As an official sponsor of the Fair, your organization will have a tailored opportunity to interact with more than 60,000 Fairgoers.
  • Allows you and your employees to directly interact with Fairgoers
  • Visibility and signage on the grounds
  • Promotional rights – opportunity to create pre-fair traffic to your business

  • Show support for the community

Partnership Opportunities

The Crawford County Fair has a wide variety of opportunities to connect to fairgoers. Investments range from $500 – $100,000. Custom Packages are created to meet your marketing and public relations goals. We work to find the sponsorship opportunity which fits your demographic target market, your goals and your mission. We work with you to find the best fit!

Maximum Exposure

The Crawford County Fair offers companies and organizations a valuable opportunity to gain substantial exposure to a cross-section of Pennsylvanians. The Fair provides you with an ideal venue and audience of more than 100,000 fairgoers who you can share your organizations philosophy, product and customer service. It is a place to Brand your company. The Fair gives you the ability to reach an entire family of buyers in a fun environment.

The Crawford County Fair is one of the largest community events in Crawford County and one of the largest Agricultural Fairs in the State of Pennsylvania, making it a huge event in which you can show your support to the community. There is no other event in which you can touch so many people in one location in 8 days. And don’t forget about the promotion of the Fair through the Fair Preview Guide, Fair Program and Advertising.

Fairgoers are loyal to those they feel are giving back to the community. They indicate they are more likely to purchase sponsors’ products year round.

Personal Contact

Sponsorship is an investment and has become an important part of the marketing mix for many organizations. Sponsorship has unique qualities, allowing a sponsor to directly interact with and be in front of a target market. When a sponsor is associated with a positive organization, such as the Fair, these interactions can lead to an increase in brand loyalty and brand awareness.

Smart marketers are learning that to make an impact, a business needs to make a personal contact with the people they want to influence. You have that opportunity at the Fair, especially if you on-site showcasing your business or products!

Reputation

The Fair has been a big part of the community for over 70 years. Full of tradition and goodwill, the Crawford County Fair gives sponsors the opportunity to join with an organization that is credible and will contribute to your good reputation. We would be happy to discuss your goals and mission to find the perfect sponsorship for your organization.

We want to work with you to establish objectives for your sponsorship to capitalize on the draw and reputation of the Fair. By establishing your goals early on, we can better help you leverage your sponsorship so that those goals can be met.
