Every long weekend in October, the Ceduna Community celebrates.
For 3 days, around 6,000 festival patrons; local residents, intrastate, interstate, and a growing number of international visitors, flock to Ceduna and the beautiful shores of Murat Bay for the annual Oysterfest.
The festival started from humble beginnings in 1991 to promote the local oyster industry. Today, the festival is a community celebration of our history and identity and an opportunity to showcase our famous oysters, locally caught seafood and Eyre Peninsula wines. Oysterfest binds our community together, strengthens friendships and exposes our visitors to new ideas and directions. It helps our local economy to grow and our business community to thrive.
Sponsorship of this iconic festival guarantees visibility of your business with a wide range of exposure through many mediums, such as traditional methods of print and electronic media, to social media posting and the opportunity to showcase and sell your product through on-site promotion and direct communication with event participants - at a personal level.
The value of face-to-face communication or simply being seen at community festivals such as the Ceduna Oysterfest, can never be underestimated. This is why we would like to offer you the opportunity to partner with us for the 2016 Ceduna Oysterfest .
There are many ways to partner with Oysterfest to promote your business and also demonstrate your support and commitment to the community, such as; in-kind donations, financial sponsorship, as an event volunteer or advertising in the widely circulated Event Programme. Looking for a creative way to be involved? We’ll also be looking for prizes for our Mega Raffle, due to commence in May 2016, as well as unique items and experiences that can be auctioned at our Opening Night Dinner. SA’s iconic Sail Training Vessel the One & All is returning to Ceduna, and they’ll be looking for partner organisations to sponsor their exciting and challenging Youth Development Experience – you’ll want to get on board!
A partnership with Ceduna Oysterfest guarantees we will promote your business, your commitment and your support for the event – on your behalf. All sponsors are important to the Ceduna Oysterfest – after all, it is YOUR festival.
No matter what opportunity you may be interested in, all our sponsorship packages offer excellent value for money when compared with other promotional and advertising opportunities.
