A BLUE SKY FULL OF OPPORTUNITIES
Is your company part of it? If not, it certainly can be. In 2016, you’ll want to be on the field when all the world-class kites and amazing family-friendly activities attract 10,000+ visitors from Swift Current and beyond.
The SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival has steadily evolved into a well-recognized source of civic and provincial pride. Last year over 10,000 fun-loving festival goers attended with 47% who traveled from places outside Swift Current. They included people from every age group and background imaginable. It is truly a great event, attracting large audiences from around the world. In 2016, we are anticipating crowds of 10,000+ people.
Our audience is large, diverse, loyal, and continually growing. The free admission allows everyone equal opportunity to attend and experience the magnificence of a world-class kite festival. Our spectacular line-up of some of the world’s greatest kite artists and performers attracts multi-generational families who find amazing things to entertain all age groups.
Large festivals take an incredible amount of planning, organizing, fundraising, advertising and work. Our festival wouldn’t be possible without the support we receive from all our 250+ volunteers and sponsors. We were very fortunate to have amazing volunteers who were happy to help and became experts in face painting, twisting balloon animals, and building kites. The support of our community makes this the great festival it is today.
The SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival has also turned into a great unmatched opportunity for forward-thinking corporations and businesses to present themselves amid a free, family-oriented outpouring of beauty, sport and art.
We want partners who recognize that the SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival has the ability to become an international signature event! You would be hard-pressed to find any annual event that holds such a reservoir of good will and community pride in Swift Current or Saskatchewan. Here is the golden opportunity for your company to come fly with us!
Sponsorship is not only community involvement and support but also a fantastic marketing tool for your company. Sponsorship is a way to gain recognition and awareness in a creative and vibrant way. You will be adding to the experience of our patrons and increasing the impact of your marketing activities. Event sponsorship achieves greater visibility with more people than traditional print advertising. Last year, over three million people saw advertising and information about our festival. Our website, www.windscapekitefestival.ca, continues to grow, and traffic increased in 2014 by 8% over 2013. Our festival spends over $160,000 in our community. We generate almost 1.5 million dollars in tourism impact in Swift Current on festival weekend.
Many advertising opportunities exist. Benefits can be added or traded and they include: volunteer party sponsorship, volunteer perk packages, the right to run contests or promotions with the festival or other festival partners onsite, exclusivity on a celebrity flyer or service category such as:
- Kite Workshop Area
- Ice Cream and Candy Shop

- Children’s Activity Station
