Each year, the organizers of the Verde Valley Wine Festival issue a call to the community for businesses and individuals who are willing to be financial sponsors of our event. These sponsors help us cover many of the costs of running a large event. It’s not an overstatement to say that without the generosity of our sponsors, the Verde Valley Wine Festival would not be possible.
Our sponsors are often small business owners. They have the foresight to understand the close connection between the growing Arizona wine economy and their own business’s success. The vineyards, wineries, and tasting rooms across the Grand Canyon State are responsible for bringing in millions of dollars in revenue. The wine lovers who make the trip to any of our three AVA regions will undoubtedly need to find lodging, food, places to shop, and explore. Given this interconnection, it’s no surprise that other industries such as travel and tourism and hospitality are enjoying the benefits of the Arizona wine economy.
We’d like to thank the following small businesses and individuals for investing in the 2022 Verde Valley Wine Festival.
PREMIER COMMUNITY PARTNER
- Verde Canyon Railroad
- Arizona Wine Media
- Virgin Cheese
- Origins Bed and Breakfast

We encourage Festival ticket holders and the community to show your support for these generous businesses by shopping with them whenever possible. Their sponsorship of our event demonstrates their commitment to the community. Local businesses are a significant component of the Verde Valley Wine Festival.
The Meaning of Sponsorship
What does it mean to sponsor an event? Sponsors offer funding or products and services to support events. In exchange, your business receives exposure and a chance to connect with new customers. Our Festival draws in thousands of attendees who plan to stay and play in the Verde Valley. They are discerning consumers who care deeply about spending their dollars with local businesses. Sponsorships put your brand’s visuals in front of this audience, who may not have heard of your business before.
This year’s Festival still has some open opportunities for local sponsors. Here are just a few:
- $2500 Associate Sponsor
- $1000 Supporting Sponsor – A great deal for employer rewards
- $2000 Potty Sponsor – Guaranteed foot traffic 😉
- $1200 Safe Ride Sponsor – Make sure our guests get home safely
- $700 Ice Machine Sponsor – A cool spot for your logo
