If you would like to become an exclusive sponsor of a Main Street event please contact our Executive Director, Leah Polzien firstname.lastname@example.org or (906)337-6246! Sponsorship will be based on first come, first served basis. We are happy to accommodate your marketing needs, if you have other ways you'd like to contribute to Main Street Calumet, please contact us to discuss additional options!
Spring Clean-Up $500: Each spring 50+ volunteers (students, neighbors, business owners and members of several organizations) gather to pick-up trash throughout downtown Calumet, around the CLK School grounds and in portions of Calumet Township. After the trash is picked MSC hosts a small BBQ for the volunteers in Agassiz Park. Hosting this event is a great way to demonstrate your businesses dedication to our community and thank the folks that volunteer to make our community better. This event will be promoted with radio advertising, social media posts, through the Main Street website and locally distributed posters. Your company name/link/logo will be included in all of these promotions where applicable.
Pasty Fest $1500: This annual celebration of the Cornish delight draws over 1,000 spectators to downtown Calumet. Local families and tourists alike attend to take in the parade, peruse the vendor booths and enjoy a pasty.
Sponsorship includes dedicated acknowledgement of your company as the sponsor on all print material (posters – distributed in Houghton and Keweenaw County) and in radio advertising as well as on official Pasty Fest t-shirt (other pasty related t-shirts may be sold but will not reference Pasty Fest).
The Daily Mining Gazette may produce print material related to the event but MSC is not responsible for this publication and this sponsorship package is unrelated. This event and your sponsorship will also be promoted with social media posts and on the Main Street website with your business name/link/logo where applicable.
Main Street Farmer’s Market $2500: Every Saturday this summer local growers and food producers will gather from 10am-2pm to sell their wares. Locals and tourists alike stop by the Market between the Calumet Theater and Shute’s on 6th Street to pick up fresh produce and yummy bakery. The Main Street Farmer’s Market was rejuvenated last summer with a new location and dedication from producers. Each of the 18 markets in summer 2016 saw 4-10 vendors and drew around 50 shoppers.
Sponsorship includes your business name on all radio and print advertising (excluding rack cards which will be used for multiple years). Print advertising will include 100+ posters distributed locally, and on banners which will be located weekly at the intersection of Hwy 41 and 6th Street Extension and at the market. We would also like to invite the sponsor to attend each market in a free booth space on any or all market days.
