Waterfowl Festival

The annual Waterfowl Festival is a significant source of funding for Waterfowl Chesapeake’s conservation efforts. Businesses and individuals are encouraged to support the Festival in order to underwrite costs associated with the event to ensure the maximum amount of proceeds are directed to conservation projects.

Festival Corporate Partner Program

The generous contributions of our Corporate Partners are instrumental to the success of each annual Waterfowl Festival.  Their sponsorship offsets the costs of conducting the Festival, thus enabling the maximum amount of Festival proceeds to be applied to conservation activities. The Corporate Partner Program offers levels of support ranging from $1,500 to $20,000. In appreciation, the Waterfowl Festival extends recognition, promotional and entertainment benefits which vary depending upon the level of support.

All levels include advertising and networking opportunities with Festival donors and other community and regional business participants.  Partnering with the Festival is an excellent opportunity for businesses to meet their goals for community involvement by supporting an event that attracts nearly 20,000 attendees from the Mid-Atlantic region and produces an annual economic impact of $6 million to the community.
