Sponsorships

Thank you for your interest in being a 2022 Black Walnut Festival sponsor!

Camden Comeback is proud that a part of our mission is to organize successful activities like this Festival that bring our community together and that also bring so many out-of-town visitors to Camden and to Preble County.

Our popular Black Walnut Festival (BWF) is one of the most well-attended in the SW Ohio area and has been for more than 30 years. Last year, we sold out our 135 vendors and averaged 8,000-9,000 attendees each day of the two-day Festival.  We are planning to expand the number of vendors, add additional activities for our attendees and be even bigger and better this year.

Camden Comeback promotes and markets the Black Walnut Festival extensively in the months and weeks prior to the event via:

  • BWF Website and Facebook page
  • Local Tri-state community Facebook pages
  • Facebook ads within a 150 miles radius
  • Radio and local television station promotions
  • News stories and advertisements in local newspapers

Our generous sponsors receive a lot of exposure as well before, during and after the event. As a Black Walnut Festival sponsor, you/your business name and logo will be displayed prominently on event signage, various promotional and marketing materials and highlighted on our Facebook page and website. Sponsors also have the opportunity to sponsor specific events or activities at the event.

We hope you will decide to partner with us to make this year’s Black Walnut Festival so special for our community! We would love to have you a valued sponsor. If interested, please review the information and complete the sponsor form below and we will contact you to finalize your sponsorship.

If you have any questions or would like to speak further about being a sponsor, please let us know via email (blackwalnutfestival@gmail.com) or phone (937-533-7727).
