Sponsor Package Overview

SPONSOR FAQ & GUIDELINES

Our festival is put on entirely by volunteers, and our resources can be small. Putting on a quality festival for around ten thousand people can be expensive and is only possible by generous support from our community’s individuals and businesses. Festivals like Pride are important to our community because it allows us to not only celebrate our identities and the things that make us unique, but it also gives the community an opportunity to show their support to their LGBTQIA+ neighbors, friends, employees, and customers.

Most leading businesses understand that contributing to the creation of inclusive environments is not only the right thing to do but it will serve their bottom line by connecting them with the LGBTQIA+ community and their loyal allies, who have incredible spending power. The support from our sponsors helps us continue our mission to unify, inform, support, and mobilize individuals, groups, and allies in our community through community building, communication, education, and advocacy. We promote the protection of equal rights under Missouri Law, provide a safe environment to discuss and resolve issues, and help organize events. Please consider sponsoring our event. Your efforts are deeply appreciated all across the community!
