Orders for ads in the 2017 Directory can now be placed. The directory is a full color, information packed shopper's guide that is distributed every market to all our customers. This year we will hand out 15,000 directories and plan to do the same for 2017.

Advertising in the directory will expose you to all our visitors while they are at market day...and they take them home and pass them around. We also distribute them through area chambers of commerce visitors centers.

Several bonus features are included in your ad purchase this year, including a bold listing in the index and table of contents, a 20% discount on a 1/2 or 1/4 page ad if you pay for it when you renew your booth, a 10% discount if you renew your ad with no changes, a listing on our website, and a 25% discount off your online ad ($100). This year's ad purchase packs more punch than ever!

This year we are also offering sponsorships on the benches located around the park for $300 (first year, $200 for renewals). Having your booth ad on a bench near you will increase your exposure.

There will also be large banners available for sponsorship: The pavilion will have six 8x4 banners and each music stage will have one 4x6 banner. These are very high visibility sites and will be seen by literally 1000's of visitors over the course of a season.

Lions from the marketing team will be stopping by your booth this month and in November to go over the ad program, answer your questions and complete your order. Or you can see Brian at the information booth at gate three, Bev at the information booth near gate one, or Craig at booth 6 near gate one.
