and choose from many
back for a list of the 120th Wapping Fair sponsors! Updated applications will be here soon.
Our partnership with local
businesses is one of the reasons that the Wapping Fair has made great
strides in recent years! Last year over 100 businesses were recognized
as Wapping Fair Partners! Thanks to their generosity, the fair has added
premier attractions like Roderick Russell (sword swallower), Jayna Lee (acrobat, contortionist, stilt walker), racing pigs and dachshunds. In addition, the fair has significantly upgraded
the agricultural exhibits, now over 12,000 square feet, by purchasing
new rabbit and poultry cages, goat and sheep pens, etc., to make the
exhibits more user friendly and attractive.
making the Wapping Fair a better fair, our sponsors are also indirectly
helping make our community better. More than 50% of the fair proceeds
go directly back to the South Windsor community. Through a partnership
with the Town of South Windsor, the fair will reserve 50% of its profit
each year towards a community capital project chosen by the town and
fair. In 2005, the Jaycees, through proceeds of the Wapping Fair, made
the following contributions to the community: $2,500 to the Town of
South Windsor Police Department to assist in the funding of a new police
dog, $1,000 to the South Windsor Fire Department for training equipment,
$1,000 contribution to the Phase 2 Ropes Course, $800 to My Friends'
Place to assist in building a barrier free playground and $350 to Family
Awareness Day to support the continuation of the event.
In addition, the fair funds
the year long activities of the South Windsor Jaycees. Visit the community
benefits area of the web site for more details.
Businesses now have the opportunity to be the presenting
sponsor of some of our fine entertainment. We are offering many different
packages for you to choose. Among the attractions are the ever popular Racing Pigs and Racing Ducks, the mystifying Roderick Russell, acrobatic Jayna Lee and the magical Ed the Wizard. Besides having a banner at the grounds, your company
will be mentioned in all our media events (radio, billboards, newspapers,
etc.) promoting the attraction of your choice.
Companies may choose from 3 sizes on a white vinyl banner. Text, logos
and trademarks in multiple colors all may be included. We recommend
that you provide a camera ready copy, but we can assist to a limited
degree in designing your banner. Every sponsor is welcome to contribute
250 promotional items for our Thank You Packets and all $200 or higher
packages include the full 4,000 Thank you Packets offer at NO CHARGE.
In addition, sponsorship packages above $250 will have the added bonus
of having thier name listed as one of our contests or attractions sponsors
at the event. Prices range from $100 to $750.
A limited number of business card sized spaces are available on our
fair maps, which are distributed to all fairgoers. This is excellent
for businesses that want to distribute coupons or extend an invitation
to potential customers. Approximately 4,000 maps are used each year.
The price is $100.00 per space.
As fairgoers exit the park they will receive a 'Thank You' packet from
the fair with information about the Jaycees, The Wapping Fair and other
business inserts. The inserts may be no larger than a 8 1/2" X
11" single sheet of paper. Approximately 4,000 'Thank You' packets
will be given out each year. $200 per insert and business will supply
inserts. Inserts must received by August 24 to be included!
Many of our corporate sponsors are businesses that offer services or
products (hardware supplies, restaurant gift certificates, copying services,
etc.) that the Wapping Fair would usually have to pay for. So, in many
cases the fair is more than happy to arrange a trade of services or
products in exchange for a corporate sponsorship. If you believe your
business has a product or service that would benefit the fair we would
welcome the opportunity to discuss it.
