Historic Charleston Foundation is excited to announce planning has begun for the 76th Annual Festival of Houses and Gardens in March and April of 2023. This five-week festival is HCF’s largest educational based fundraiser and is widely recognized as Charleston’s premier spring event, attracting attendance from across the country and around the world. Based on the level of interest we have been monitoring from past patrons, website inquiries, media leads, phone calls, etc., we predict the 76th year to be a robust Festival!
This translates into a terrific opportunity for your business to get in front of an audience who wants to know what services you provide and/or what goods you have to offer. Our patrons want to stay in your hotel, dine in your restaurant, shop in your Charleston store, and use your services! Many of our patrons plan their Charleston trips around this annual Festival, and they use the Festival brochure to help plan their trip. Where will they stay? Where will they eat? What transportation will they use? Where will they shop? How will they spend their time? What is a must-see or a must-do while they are here? Who is a reliable resource for real estate inquires? Who are trusted service providers when they are in Charleston? These are frequent questions asked by our Festival customers.
For only $3,000 your business will benefit from a full panel display advertisement in two Festival publications – the fall brochure and the spring program. Other advertising options and rates are available. The fall brochure is shared with all prospective patrons via postal mail, email, the HCF website, hotel and visitor center racks, concierges, tour companies, etc. The spring program is provided to the Festival ticketholders when they retrieve their tickets from our ticket office.
Please see the 2023 Festival Ad Kit which outlines the audience profile, details for brochure and program distribution, and advertising options and rates. This packet includes the sponsorship contract which you may complete and return to HCF.
Please note the deadline for inclusion in the fall brochure is August 22, 2022! You have a bit longer if you only want to be included in the spring program.
Thank you for reviewing this advertising opportunity with Historic Charleston Foundation and our 76th Annual Festival of Houses and Gardens.
