It is our pleasure to offer you the opportunity to become a festival sponsor of the Sharpeville Food Festival® taking place twice a year.

Sharpeville Food Festival® is a biannual family food and music event that takes place at the George Thabe sports grounds in the historic and vibrant township of Sharpeville in the Vaal, Gauteng. The festival has earned its fair share of buzz as one of the coolest food events in the country and offers a wide range of great food, drinks, good music and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.

When is the festival held?

Hosted on the last Saturdays of the months of March and October, the festival attracts people of all ages and cultures from all around the country. Boasting an audience of almost 10 000 since our launch in October 2017 and with the inclusion of your sponsorship we should easily double that figure. The festival caters for the whole family and provides a unique atmosphere that allows for people to explore good food and good music with their families and friends and have fun in the sun with the popular matching-outfits theme created for each festival. The festival features a kiddies entertainment zone, helicopter, over 25 food stalls, a beverage garden as well as a stage hosting a line-up of some of our finest local artists, DJ’s and international music acts amongst other activities.

How come your company does not know about the event?

Sharpeville Food Festival® is thoroughly documented on most major online and print media platforms, the success of the festival has been published by various mainstream media houses across the globe and has earned its well-deserved status as the force to be reckoned with amongst entertainment enthusiasts. The festival gains national media recognition each year through a strong relationship with media outlets across the country, a targeted advertising and marketing campaign, and a huge push into the social media sphere, this is thanks to the major social media platforms, SABC News, Kulula.com, SAA, Sunday Sun, City Press, Daily Sun, SAB Breweries, Studio Nova Branding and Ritual Studios of which our sponsors would also be highlighted. 2019 will also see the festival benefit from an updated website, larger social media traffic /presence and planned social media campaigns and we have once again partnered with the Emfuleni Local Municipality which has played a big role in making the Sharpeville Food festival a recognisable brand it is today.

Why become a sponsor?

Sponsorships are a vital part of the Sharpeville Food Festival® without which, resources and funds would not be available to host such a massive event. Sponsors that are interested in partnering with the Sharpeville Food Festival® can expect us to personally work with you to create a customized visibility plan and marketing program that maximizes your brand awareness and meets your marketing objectives. The festival is a biannual event and sponsorships can customised for both events in the year or per event. We’re looking forward to your email at info@sharpeville.co.za
