The Dawes Arboretum hosts several large events throughout the year including an Arbor Day Festival, summer concert series, educational opportunities and a holiday luminary tour.  These events offer wonderful sponsorship opportunities and marketing benefits for your organization.

The Dawes Arboretum is ranked by Columbus Business First as the 15th most visited attraction in central Ohio (Franklin and surrounding counties), with more than 250,000 annual visitors.  The Arboretum is certainly one of the most popular places in Licking County and our events draw considerable community involvement.  Partnering in an Arboretum event offers valuable exposure for your organization as well as the satisfaction of supporting a local non-profit organization.

We are currently seeking sponsors for our holiday Luminary Tour & Poinsettia Sale (Friday, December 6, 2013); Arbor Day Festival (Saturday, April 26, 2014); StoryTrail™ (May – September, 2014); Summer Concert Series (July – September 2014); and the Ohio Sustainable Landscapes Symposium (Saturday, September 13, 2014).

Sponsorships range from $250 to $6,000 depending on the scope of the opportunity and associated benefits.  Please contact the Director of Development at  development@dawesarb.org or 800.44.DAWES for more information on supporting our fine events.
