Day of Exposure at the Arts Festival

The Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Kensington Derby & Arts Festival has grown in size and recognition year after year. Every year, more than 15,000 visitors stop by to enjoy the Derby, live music acts, unique food trucks, and the many art and merchandise displays. As a sponsor, your business will have a prime spot in the middle of the Arts Festival to promote your business and distribute marketing materials. Exposure like this does not come by every day!

 
 

Day of Exposure at the Derby

The Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Derby is a wacky and wondrous spectacle that naturally draws in huge crowds that want to experience all the action and excitement! Compared to the Arts Festival, capturing the audience’s undivided attention is much easier and more focused at the Derby (i.e. being individually showcased with a handful of sponsors during the Derby versus mixed in with roughly 150 businesses, non-profits and sponsors at the Arts Festival!). In addition, depending on your sponsorship level, the Derby offers highly customized branding and marketing opportunities to help build on or heighten your brand recognition.

Examples of these Derby sponsorship opportunities include:

  • Opportunity to serve as a Derby judge

  • Naming rights of a Derby award or obstacle

  • Banner placement on the Mud Pit spectator area fence

  • Banner placement on the Main Stage

  • Speaking opportunity during the Awards Ceremony

 
 

Website and Social Media Promotions

The Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Kensington Derby & Arts Festival website and social media handles generate a lot of traffic and many impressions leading up to the Festival (200,000+ views across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). As a sponsor, your business will be showcased and linked to your preferred social media platform on our website for a full year. For instance, our 2018 sponsors are still listed here on a unique landing page in the Sponsor section of our website and on our homepage as well. Moreover, depending on your sponsorship level, your business will be promoted multiple times staggered across all of our social media platforms leading up to and/or following the festival.

PRINTED Promotions

Every year, the New Kensington Community Development Corporation (NKCDC) prints and distributes throughout the 19125 and 19134 zip codes roughly 5,000 copies of their annual Business Directory that lists many community and business resources. Your business will receive an ad in that directory (ad size dependent on your sponsorship level) and will also be featured in the NKCDC Annual Report.

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT WHILE HAVING FUN

For the second year in a row, the 2019 Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Kensington Derby & Arts Festival will be a Zero Waste event. In collaboration with the City of Philadelphia's Zero Waste and Litter Cabinet, the Festival is dedicated to significantly reducing waste and using compostable supplies and resources wherever possible. Come be a part of this amazing movement with us!
