The MVT CID seeks sponsors and partners to support several community event opportunities in 2016. Benefits of sponsoring – from social media promotion to printed giveaway items and advertising - are commensurate with the level of commitment. All sponsors receive logo placement on the onsite signage and flyers, advertising, promotion in electronic newsletter and on social media. The MVT CID is also open to suggestions for benefits that will make sponsoring an event meaningful for you.
2016 Events Include:
MVT FRESHFARM Market 2016
Back for its third year, the popular MVT FRESHFARM Market will launch in May 2016 and run until the end of October 2016 on every Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm. Sponsorship funding for the market will cover the management fees and operations of the market, advertising, production of reusable bags or other giveaways, and bringing special events to the market such as the dog agility course, petting zoo, face painting, and art activities.
Sponsorship levels: Available at the $5,000, $3,500, $2,000 & $1,000 level and as in-kind contributions of special treats, prizes, coupons, activities and other giveaways.
Tunes in the Triangle
The MVT CID plans to host four outdoor evening concerts at Milian Park (corner of Massachusetts Avenue and 5th Street NW) in the summer of 2016. In 2015, the event drew hundreds of office workers, residents, families and visitors. Participants enjoyed music, games and met their neighbors. The concerts will include popular music ranging from jazz and bluegrass to pop and rock. The event will be professionally managed by On Tap Productions. As one resident tweeted last year: “Completely changed the dynamic of the park, families, singles, couples hanging out #tunesinthetriangle @MVTCID @PoPville @badwolfdc.”
Sponsorship levels: Available at the $4,000, $2,000 & $1,000 level and as in-kind contributions of special treats, prizes, coupons, activities and other giveaways.
Seasonal Festivals: Fall Fun Day October 2016 & Photos with Santa December 2016
The MVT CID produces two seasonal festivals each year at the 5th & K Street plaza: Fall Fun Day (end of October) and Photos with Santa (middle of December). These events have been very popular and provide the community with a number of activities to celebrate together. In the past, the Fall Fun Day has included a mini-monsters kids trick-or-treating, dog costume contest, pumpkin painting, fall decorations and more. The Photos with Santa has included free photos with Santa for kids, pets, and adults, set-up of a Santa’s house and presents for a festive photo backdrop, free hot drinks and treats, and collection of toys for donation.
Sponsorship levels: Available at the $2,000 & $1,000 level and as in-kind contributions of special treats, prizes, coupons, activities and other giveaways
Triangle Block Party
New in 2016 will be the Mount Vernon Triangle Block Party. The Triangle Block Party is proposed to close off the 400 block of K Street NW for an afternoon of festivities, food, games and celebration of all that MVT has to offer. We anticipate showcasing our more than 50 retailers and restaurants as well as the great residential and office buildings. There will be something for everyone with a music stage, interactive activities, kid’s zone and dog activities. We are open to innovative ideas to make the event a success.
Sponsorship levels: Available at the $10,000 (title sponsor), $8,000, $5,000, $2,500 and $1,000 levels.
