Sponsor the 17:10 Market

2024 Market Forecast

  • 45-50 local makers and growers
  • Activities for families, including a petting zoo, campfires, face painting
  • 10+ food vendors
  • Several thousand attendees

Because 17:10 Market is a labor of love for local makers and the community, we rely on sponsors to help us cover many of our expenses. This allows us to keep our fees extremely reasonable for our participants.

Sponsorship

Your generous donation helps inspire local small businesses, giving them a chance to interact face-to-face with our community. You can choose to cover a specific need from the list below or donate a dollar amount of your choosing.

Local Advertising

In the weeks leading up to the market, we get the word out by placing posters and signs around the community as well as investing in targeted social media ads and photography.

Petting Zoo

One of the family activities is a petting zoo, which has been a huge hit at our last two markets.

Bathroom Trailer & Handwashing Stations

Miller Portables gives us a generous discount on a bathroom trailer and handwashing stations. We also rent an extra handwashing station to put near the petting zoo.

Sound System

We rent several speakers and place them around the market to play music from a curated 17:10 Market playlist.

Tents

The makers sell their products underneath two large tents which we light with string lights.

Partial or Full Sponsorship Available.

Grounds & Utilities

This covers the cost of the grounds we rent as well as setting up water and electricity for our vendors and food trucks.

Golf Carts

Utility golf carts are used by our team during setup. We also use the carts to help makers transport their products between their booths and their cars before and after the market.

Tables & Chairs

Keim gives us a generous discount on tables & chairs. Each maker is given a 10’x10’ booth underneath the tents. We furnish a table and a chair for each space.

Fire Pits

Several fire pits are set up in the open lawn with seating for people to roast marshmallows, eat dinner, and hang out as the sun goes down.

Decorations

How do we recognize sponsors?

Signs at the market

18"x24" signs are placed around the market recognizing each of our sponsors. Typically, each sponsored “item” gets a sign. (i.e. fire pit sponsors on a sign by the fire pits, tent sponsors on a sign outside a tent entrance, etc.)
