The Coast Guard Festival Committee is well underway with the planning of the 2020 Festival! We are offering our FRIENDS TOGETHER sponsorship for only $200. Your business can be a part of the tradition and honor of the 96th Coast Guard Festival. Our theme this year is “Respecting Traditions, Ready for the Future”.

We will reflect and honor the brave Coast Guard men and women who have chosen to be a part of an exceptional branch of service and how important they are to the United States and to our community. Last year we had roughly 130 businesses that participated in our “Friends Together” sponsorship, and this year will undoubtedly increase. We are offering each local business an opportunity this year to be part of this collaborative sponsorship. Without the higher dollars of a traditional sponsorship, you are still supporting the Festival and at the same time, receiving some marketing benefits.

Through a “Friends Together” sponsorship of the Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival, you, along with other West Michigan businesses, are together helping to perpetuate the celebration to honor the dedicated men and women of the United States Coast Guard. In addition, your sponsorship can also be a means to achieve greater exposure for your business or organization, and help in reaching targeted marketing goals. The Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival is a 501(c) 3 organization; therefore, your sponsorship is tax deductible.

If you are interested in being part of this sponsorship, please fill out this form. Don’t forget to attach your logo or email your logo to [email protected] The 2020 Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival dates are July 24th through August 2nd. If you have questions and/or comments, please feel free to contact us at (616) 846-5940 or you can access our website at www.coastguardfest.org.

As part of a sponsorship of the 2020 Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival, your business or organization will carry the designation of FRIENDS TOGETHER SPONSOR for the 2020 Coast Guard Festival. During the Festival week, beginning July 24th, 2020, and concluding on August 2nd, 2020, the Festival will make available a wide range of promotional opportunities to the sponsor as detailed below.

FRIENDS TOGETHER sponsors will be entitled to the following amenities:

  • Your company name or logo on our website sponsor page, listed under Festival Friends, www.coastguardfest.org.
  • Your company name or logo printed in the official 2020 Coast Guard Festival brochure distributed across West Michigan beginning in June until the end of the festival.
  • Window cling designating you as a 2020 Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival Sponsor and supporter of the men and women of the United States Coast Guard.

Deadline for becoming a Friends Together sponsor is April 20th, 2020.
