Become a 2017 sponsor!

Sponsoring the Gaithersburg Book Festival, scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 20, 2017,  is a highly visible way to show that you support the community and value the arts, while gaining visibility with our attendees, who are among the region’s best-read and most well-educated individuals.

Entering into its eighth year, the Festival now attracts more than 20,000 attendees.

Because of the sheer scope of the Festival, the City of Gaithersburg is able to fund only a modest portion of the event’s expenses. We rely on the generosity of corporate partners, foundations and individual donors to help us deliver the world-class event that our attendees have come to expect.

We offer sponsorships to fit a variety of budgets, or we can tailor a sponsorship plan to fit your needs.
