Sponsor Resources

The Ridgway RiverFest is a free community festival on the banks of the Uncompahgre River, scheduled for Saturday, August 28, 2021. Your tax-deductible contribution will fund this festive event, help promote awareness of our rivers and water resources, and support important water quality restoration activities. All sponsors will receive valuable exposure at the event as well as in online and media promotion. In addition to cash contributions from $125 to $2,500, sponsors can choose to donate products or services as silent auction items or as in-kind support of the the festival (such as giveaways, advertising, equipment rental, etc.).

The RiverFest is produced by the Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit (EIN: 46-2946756) devoted to protecting the economic, natural, and scenic values of the Upper Uncompahgre Watershed. In addition to charitable tax deductions, most sponsors above the $100 level are eligible for a 25% tax credit.

Sponsor commitments are due by July 17 to get full sponsor benefits. Sponsorships and donations including silent auction items will be gladly accepted after July 31, though some promotional benefits may not be available at that time.

Soon, we will be posting our Sponsorship Opportunity sheet for 2021 you can learn about the benefits of each sponsor level. Until then, please read our 2020-RidgwayRiverfest_Sponsorships sheet to get a general idea.

When you have decided the right sponsor level for you, we will have an online sponsor form to fill out or if you prefer you can download, print, fill out and email or mail back a form. We will have those available by mid to late May. If you have questions before then, feel free to email Pamela at riverfestassistant@gmail.com or call and leave a message at 970-325-3010.
