Dear Town of Wilton Sponsors/Business Supporters:

The Town of Wilton’s Bicentennial and ParkFest committees are working hard to get ready for our 2018 ParkFest and 2018 Bicentennial special events. The year 2018 will be a year of remembrance and celebration as the Town of Wilton celebrates its Bicentennial.  In commemoration, the Bicentennial Committee is planning a series of special events throughout the year.  We invite you to consider becoming a supporting sponsor and participate in the opportunity to encourage the citizens of this township to pause, reflect and remember our history.

Thousands of visitors attend the ParkFest event and enjoy a fun-filled day.  Each year we achieve record breaking attendance. This Community Day celebration is offered to the Town of Wilton residents and those of its surrounding communities with free entry and parking. The day includes activities, entertainment, a live band, crafters, rides, food vendors, contests, games and fireworks at dusk. Each year we think of better ways to get the word out not only for our event, but for all of you who help sponsor this great day.

We have designed a sponsorship program of different levels that includes sponsorship of both the Bicentennial year as well as ParkFest 2018. A wide range of advertisement value for your company is available depending on the level chosen.

The “Signature” events are:

  • 2018 ParkFest Community Day events to be held on July 7, 2018
  • Town of Wilton Bicentennial Kickoff Gala to be held at McGregor Links Country Club on January 27, 2018
  • Bicentennial Historic Site Tour to be held on April 21-22, 2018
  • Taste of Wilton event to be held at Gavin Park on September 24, 2018
  • Bicentennial Holiday Community Dinner to be held at the Saratoga/Wilton Elks Club on December 29, 2018

As you probably know, putting on all of these events takes a lot of time and effort to organize and promote. We need to start now to confirm sponsorships in time for the advertising to be up and running. These events are right around the corner so don’t delay! Please take the time to look at the attached information. You will see that you get quite a bit of advertisement for your money, not only in 2017 but throughout 2018.

Be sure to call Nancy Riely at 587-1939 extension 239 if you have any questions. Nancy or another representative from the Bicentennial Committee will be contacting you to follow up in the next couple of weeks. Thank you for your interest and I hope to see you at these exciting events.
