SPONSORSHIP

CALL FOR SPONSORSHIP

This year the board of directors of OKC PRIDE Incorporated would like to include you as a sponsor of our annual Pride Parade. The level of participation and sponsorships have grown dramatically over the years. Last year was the largest "Festival In The Park", with over forty booths and three stages of continuous entertainment. We estimated that at least 500 people were in the park having a great time. The parade itself was a grand success with over 60 entries. The crowd along the route and at the 39th Street area easily numbered in the thousands.

The hours before the parade kicks off we will have a festival in the park. Last year was the largest gathering to date. With such a large venue as Memorial Park at NW 35th and Classen we will be able to give everyone all the room they need to set up booths of many types. Last year we had a variety of food, gift, and informational booths. The cost of a booth this year will be $25 for a non-profit and $40 for all others (before June 5th. The price goes up after that.). A table and 2 chairs can be provided for an additional $10. If you have any special needs we will accommodate as much as we can. For example, if you need electricity or want a tent we can arrange through the rental company we use to deliver it, set it up and return it. The additional cost will need to be paid in advance and it will be required that you notify us well in advance of Parade Day.
