My name is Jeanette Patanella. I am the 2022 Sponsorship Chairperson for the Independence Sicilian Heritage Festival.
I am excited to bring our sponsorship offerings to you this year! The sponsorship committee has worked diligently to tailor offerings that maximize your advertising dollars & increase public exposure in return for your generous support.
This year’s festival, celebrating our 14th anniversary, will be held March 11-13th, 2022 on the streets of downtown Independence, Louisiana. We expect it to be the biggest and best yet with typical crowds ranging between 15,000-20,000 people throughout the weekend. The festival has a great reputation for having a good time with live music, cold drinks, tasty food, as well as carnival rides and games. We invest quite a bit in advertising that includes television, radio, social media and the Internet. These efforts result in thousands of hits to our website and attract patrons from as far away as Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas, and beyond!
Independence is a beautiful old railroad town in the heart of Tangipahoa Parish that has been celebrating our Sicilian-Italian heritage through an annual festival going on for almost 50 years. Our festival provides a fabulous fund-raising outlet for the area’s non-profit organizations, including private & public schools’ groups. Our festival also creates an important economic impact & helps to raise awareness for the many businesses across the Parish and State.
Please consider partnering with us to bring this event to our region once again this year. Attached is the detailed information of the packages available and the many perks associated with each level of sponsorship. Further your reputation as a business that gives back to the community. Let us include your business with those who will make a lasting impression on our countless consumers. I look forward to hearing from you!
