We are a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization. Sponsoring Festival events and programs provides extensive benefits for the community and your business. The Festival has become a Sun Valley signature event and an international "bucket list" event for good reason.  Thousands of visitors and guests help make this a premier extended weekend for local businesses every October. And, with more national awards than any other Valley Festival, it is a great investment in the community and your business.  We cannot do it without you!
