Thank you for loving downtown Hartsville! Main Street Hartsville has great plans for our city this year, focusing on building an attractive, economically vibrant downtown commercial district. Your sponsorship will help to further our efforts in economic development, events and promotions that keep our sidewalks filled with life and commerce, and engage our community with their downtown.
This year, instead of asking you as each event comes up, we thought it might be helpful for you to plan your support based on our Calendar of Events, which includes:
Hartsville Farmers Market
The Hartsville Farmers Market is held every second Saturday from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm from April through December.
Our newly energized farmer’s market was relocated in 2015 to the 100 block of East Carolina Avenue, between 5th Street and The Mantissa Executive Suites, with tremendous response from the community and downtown storefronts, as it was a huge traffic-building event. This free-to-the-public street fair is a juried show, with outreach to local farmers and artisans, offering wholesome and handcrafted regional specialties, with a larger emphasis on farm-fresh fare. Expenses include: live musicians and entertainment, new signage, tables, tents, insurance, port-a-johns and marketing.
$1,250Your logo/name will be featured on all key marketing materials, including signage, banners, social media, print materials, radio, and on mainstreethartsville.org. A 10” x 10” tent and a community outreach table will be set up for your business at each market, if desired, and also at our Downtown Block Party events.
Community Corner Sponsor
$500Nine Community Corner Sponsorships are available.
Because the Farmers Market has become a forum for civic groups and non-profits to promote their events and outreach to the community, you can sponsor their area of booths. Your logo/name will be featured on most marketing materials and a tent and a community outreach table will be reserved for your business for the date of your sponsorship!
$250Your logo/name will be featured on most marketing materials, a booth space will be reserved for you at every event, your logo on our Volunteers t-shirts!
Friend of the Farmers Market
$125Your logo/name will be featured on most marketing materials, including our new Main Street Do-Gooder Volunteer t-shirts!
Downtown Block Parties on East College Avenue
Downtown Block Party events are held on Thursdays from 6:00 to 9:00 pm each spring and fall.
We have lots of great community-building events planned for this year, including a series of Thursday night concerts. These after-hours, free events are a great way for local businesses to give back to the community, and have become more family-friendly, and engage more civic and community groups and volunteers.
