Event Sponsorships

Working Together To Create Amazing Events

The board, staff, and volunteers of Downtown Eau Claire, Inc. work year-round to create and execute exciting events, each with a different goal and target audience. By creating nine major events every year, we bring thousands of visitors to Downtown and showcase the amazing businesses and community we all love.

Major Events and Festivals

Downtown Eau Claire, Inc. works throughout the year to create major festivals and events that attract thousands of residents and visitors. Our flagship event, the International Fall Festival, brings an estimated 6,000 people to the South Barstow District in just one day.

Unique Experiences

Even when we go small, we go big! With your sponsorship of our annual fundraising events and experiences, we are able to work every day to support our businesses and community. The Downtown Eau Claire Awards honor the individuals and businesses that advance Downtown and support the mission of Downtown Eau Claire, Inc. We hope you’ll join us! 

Why Your Support Is Vital

Currently, our only ticketed event is A Grand Evening on the Bridge - which is a fundraiser to help keep all other events that we plan free of charge for attendees. However funds raised from that event only cover a small portion of our event costs. That is where sponsors like you come in! Your event sponsorship allows us to give back to the community and serve audiences in a way that would be impossible with paid events. Your dollars go directly to supporting the events and year-round efforts of Downtown Eau Claire, Inc. With nearly half our funding coming from events and sponsors, your support is vital to helping us advance Downtown and serve our community.

Join Us As A Sponsor

We have sponsorship levels for every budget and benefits to match. Join us as a presenting sponsor and show our community just how much you love Downtown. Or become a major sponsor and we’ll recognize your business with a named area or activity. Or spread your sponsorship budget out and support us at multiple events. It’s all up to you!
