THE OFFICIAL Western North Carolina BBQ Festival
The Maggie Valley Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the return of the WNC BBQ Festival, Smokin’ in the Valley, July 24 & 25, 2015. Governor Pat McCrory recently declared Smokin’ in the Valley as the official BBQ competition in Western North Carolina!
Enclosed you will find an informational guide outlining the WNC BBQ Festival Sponsorship Opportunities. We invite you to share in this exciting event as a corporate sponsor. We are hopeful that we can count on you to help us make our event a huge success!
We are expecting a great tourism season this year in Maggie Valley. We also have increased our advertising budget to better market this event and are teaming up with another favorite WNC barbecue event: Mountain High BBQ Festival in Franklin, to continue the WNC Points Chase with the highest combined score from both events in a $1,500 purse event. Therefore, our event will receive double the coverage!
This event will include extensive advertising throughout Western North Carolina and beyond. With the WNC BBQ Festival being a Kansas City BBQ Society event, our advertising coverage will extend all across the United States with our event being listed on the official KCBS website and in their official newsletter, Kansas City Bullsheet. In 2013, a full page article appeared in their publication about the Maggie Valley event.
Your business will be included in all our advertising efforts. In addition, your company will receive FREE admission tickets to the event. All of the benefits are described in detail in the Sponsorship opportunity packet.
