Why Should I Become a Sponsor?
Featuring an audience of more than 25,000 over a 2-day period, the Riesling Festival offers a fantastic opportunity to connect with people gathered to enjoy food, wine and the culture of the Finger Lakes.
Admission to the festival is free, with donations taken over the 2 days to raise funds for the Canandaigua YMCA’s Caring for Kids Campaign and the charities of the Canandaigua Rotary, including many nonprofits throughout Ontario County. Over the past 4 years, more than $120,000 has been raised to benefit families in the Canandaigua area. Through our partnership with the Canandaigua Rotary Festival and Street Dance, your money will help make the festival the largest fundraising weekend in Ontario County. By sponsoring the Riesling Festival, you can associate your brand with a philanthropic charitable event that is focused on having a positive impact on the community.
