Sponsor Package Overview

Our Festival: A Community Effort

Hosting an event for approximately 10,000 attendees is a significant financial undertaking. It is the generous contributions from individuals and businesses within our community that make this possible.

Why Pride Matters

Pride festivals play a crucial role in our community. They offer us a chance to celebrate our identities and what makes us unique. More importantly, they provide an opportunity for the community to support their LGBTQIA+ neighbors, friends, employees, and customers.

The Business Case for Inclusion

Leading businesses recognize that fostering inclusive environments is not just the right thing to do—it’s also good for business. Connecting with the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies, who wield considerable spending power, benefits the bottom line. Sponsorship support enables us to continue our mission to:

  • Unify, inform, support, and mobilize community members and allies
  • Build community through communication, education, and advocacy
  • Advocate for equal rights under Missouri law
  • Provide a safe space for discussion and problem-solving
  • Organize impactful events

Join Us as a Sponsor
