Sponsorship Opportunities

Interested in being a sponsor for this event? There are two ways to support this family-friendly community event. First, organizations/businesses can register to host a booth and activity with candy or prizes. They decorate their own car trunk or a 10’x10’ canopy tent booth with a Halloween theme of their choosing (family-appropriate) and distribute candy/prizes to trick-or-treaters. There is no fee to participate - we just ask that you bring enough candy/prizes for 3,000+ attendees.

To register, fill out this form:

Second, organizations can sponsor in-kind products or monetarily. Cash sponsorships go directly into providing candy, decorations, and activities for this event. This is a great way to give back to the community and promote your business/organization or any upcoming events and programs. If interested, please e-mail
