The annual Holland Friends of Art Kerstmarkt is a European-style open-air holiday market held in late November and early December which draws thousands of visitors to downtown Holland, Michigan. It has been voted into the “10Best Holiday Markets in the USA” in a 2022 USA Today reader’s poll and routinely draws visitors from as far away as Chicago and Detroit. The Kerstmarkt operates under the umbrella of the Holland Friends of Art, a licensed non-profit organization. With your help, we can continue this special holiday tradition and make it even better.
While vendors pay for the use of the Kerstmarkt booths, that revenue is not enough to pay for the storage, assembly, and teardown of the market booths and decorations, much less special events and marketing! Because of this, the Kerstmarkt is offering the following tax-deductible sponsorship levels.
Bronze Sponsors: $100 – $499:
- your (business) name listed on the Kerstmarkt website and Facebook page.
- your (business) will be the sole sponsor of one of the eighteen booths, with signage on the booth sponsored during the entire Kerstmarkt. ($ 100/ea)
Silver Sponsors: $500 – $999:
- all Bronze tier benefits.
- your (business) name listed on 10,000 full-color brochures distributed throughout the summer and fall at area shows and farmers markets and through the Holland Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Gold Sponsors: $1,000 – $4,999
- all Bronze and Silver tier benefits.
- a 1” ad on 10,000 full color brochures distributed throughout the summer and fall at area shows and farmers markets and through the Holland Convention and Visitors Bureau
- individual sponsorship of a feature event at the Kerstmarkt (such as the Glühwein booth or live musicians). We will work with you to determine a good event sponsorship fit.
Platinum Sponsor: $5,000 or more
- there will be one platinum sponsor whose (business) name will appear in the header on 10,000 full color brochures distributed throughout the summer and fall at area shows and farmers markets and through the Holland Convention and Visitors Bureau. Your (business) name will be featured prominently in all advertising and on event signage at the Kerstmarkt. Platinum Sponsors will also receive all the benefits of the Gold, Silver and Bronze tiers.
This is your opportunity to support a unique Holland holiday tradition. Come join us!
