We are celebrating 38 years and celebrating “Rhythm of the Sea!” The Morro Bay Harbor Festival has annually brought together the local fishing industry, civic and community groups, marine-related enterprises, small businesses, corporations, artisans, environmental organizations and individual citizens to focus public awareness on what makes Morro Bay exceptional—the Embarcadero, Maritime history and the people. More than 10,000 guests attend the Festival annually!
This year we are looking to extend the Morro Bay Harbor Festival back to our traditional 2 day event. The Harbor Festival has something for everyone, with 2+ entertainment stages and a national artist performance this year. We will also have a dedicated area for children, fresh fish from local fisherman, car show events, wine and seafood tent and Oktoberfest themed and German beer tasting. This year we will feature a local artist tent, plus a special Environmental Innovative Technology tent. A long time popular tradition will also include our “Down the Hatch Oyster” contest and the Hawaiian shirt contest.
In partnering with the Harbor Festival as a sponsor, your contribution will play a critical role in the presentation of the Harbor Festival for the community. WE CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU! Understanding you have strategic goals for the funds you spend in the community, we will work with you in developing a sponsorship package that matches those goals.
**We can come up with a personal package for you and your budget**
Upon your review of the sponsorship package we would like to discuss the best sponsorship fit for you to partner for the 38th Morro Bay Festival celebrating “Rhythm of the Sea”.
Please contact Cheryl Wells or Don Doubledee at (805) 772-1155 or email@example.com.
