We invite you to become a Sponsor of the 2018 Amaranth Apple Festival. Download the Sponsor Packet>

The Amaranth Apple Festival is proud to be the descendent of the original summer festival, The Taste of Downtown, produced by Downtown Springfield Inc. to raise funds for downtown revitalization. This year's festival committee invites you to become a sponsor of the 2018 Amaranth Apple Festival.

DSI's festival now takes its name from the mystical fruit in Vachel Lindsay's utopian novel. S/he who eats of the magical Amaranth Apple shall see the true beauty of Springfield! And wonderfully enough, Lindsay's novel reaches its utopian conclusion 100 years after its writing – which is during the state's bicentennial in 2018.

Held each year in beautiful and historic downtown Springfield, the event includes nationally known musicians as always — and now weaves in amazing local poetry, art, and cuisine to feature the best of Springfield today.

The Amaranth Apple Festival is produced through the support of corporate and private donations and the dedication of nearly 200 volunteers. Sponsorship is critical to hosting high-quality musicians that attract a diverse audience. Our sponsorship packages are offered in a variety of sizes to suit any budget. Your sponsorship will get your company's name before a large and enthusiastic audience for the two days of the festival and will include promotion of your business in the weeks leading up to the festival.

Your sponsorship allows us to book the best talent available and ensures another quality downtown event. This is the only summer festival which raises funds for downtown revitalization and DSI's work to increase foot traffic, decrease vacancies and put forward creative placemaking projects.
