MAJOR SPONSORSHIP – starting at $12,000
Contracts can be customized to meet the specific needs of each unique sponsor. Since Major Sponsors offer tremendous support and services to the event, they receive the most exposure (such as a corporate balloon banner, banners around the launch field, full-page program ad, exclusive hosting areas and priority in our scheduling of media day flights). This a premium level sponsorship and is therefore on a first-come, first-serve basis to a limited number of sponsors.

SILVER SPONSORSHIP – starting at $8,500
Silver Sponsors receive excellent exposure throughout the weekend without the investment of a major sponsorship. These sponsors will be recognized as Silver Sponsors in our official program and announcements throughout the weekend. They receive a quarter-page program ad, a 10 x 10 vending space on Balloon Boulevard and much more.

(SOLDOUT FOR 2024) CORPORATE SPONSORSHIP – starting at $4,500
Tailored for businesses who want to become involved with the event, Corporate Sponsorships give local companies an opportunity to get noticed and have fun at the same time. Corporate Sponsors receive one ride for two people each day during the event. Additionally, many corporate sponsors use their rides as an employee incentive or customer appreciation.

This is the specialty balloon sponsorship. It is for businesses and corporations that currently have a ballooning program for their special-shaped or logo balloon that promotes a specific product or company. A room for the pilot is included in this fee. Along with Major Sponsor balloons, logo balloons are given priority launch on media day.

*All sponsorship sales are limited and are on a first-come, first-served basis.*
