Milton Roundup Sponsorship Deadline Nears

Businesses and non-profits wanting to get in all the ads for the free event have until the end of day Monday, Sept. 10, to sign up.

Business and non-profit organizations wanting to sponsor the 2012 Milton Roundup should sign up by Monday, Sept. 10, so they can still be in all the advertisements. The event is the city's annual celebration of its creation that includes live music, games, rides and plenty of local food.

Business and local non-profits can download the sponsorship and vendor packet from the city's Website.

"These ads - running in virtually every local publication in North Fulton for weeks before the event - are a great opportunity for local businesses and non-profits," said Jason Wright, communications manager for the City of Milton.

Wright said sponsorships will be taken after Sept. 10. However, they will only be added to advertisements scheduled after their approval.

The 2012 Milton Roundup will take place Oct. 20 from noon to 6 p.m. on the grounds of (click here for directions). All residents of Milton, along with their family and friends, are invited to join in the day-long event where they can eat great local food, play games, listen to music, hop on one of our exciting rides or just spend the day outside enjoying Georgia's beautiful fall weather. Parking and admission are free.

The sponsor/vendor packet is also available on the Milton Roundup's official Website. As vendors and sponsors come in, their names, logos and links to their Websites will be added.

As in the past four years, there are three levels of sponsorship:

  1. Golden Horseshoe ($1,500)
  2. Pardner ($1,000)
  3. Buckaroo ($500)

Each features its own perks, including company logo placement on all event banners, advertisements and T-shirts, prime booth space in front of 3,000 to 5,000 people and links to your organization from the city's Web site. Specific inclusion and logo placement are based on sponsorship level.

Non-profit and food vendors are also welcomed to take part in the 2012 Milton Roundup. Booth space is $25 for non-profit groups. Food vendors can expect to pay a $100 deposit to participate, plus 20 percent of gross sales minus the deposit. The application deadline is Sept. 20. Food vendors that offer similar services will be limited at the discretion of the City of Milton.

To be a part of the Milton Roundup's full day of entertainment, email Mark Joseph or call 404-444-5188.

The sponsor page on Milton's website is practically empty and I bet most of these folks are in kind sponsors. If it weren't such a lame event I'd be more enthusiastic, but it's mostly kid stuff. There's nothing to draw any empty nesters.

21 sponsors more than a month before the event? Hardly empty, Whitney. And who cares about in-kind? The event is paid for by taxpayer dollars, so every in-kind sponsorship just offsets Milton residents' cost. It's mostly kid stuff for a reason -- kids come to this event. If you want more grown up fare, go elsewhere. Look at everything ever created for this event -- all kids. There's a reason for that.
