Corporate Sponsorship

Our year-round celebration of performing arts, compelling conversations, international collaboration, and community enrichment culminates in a two-week festival each June. Every summer, the International Festival of Arts & Ideas takes over the theaters, open spaces, and courtyards of New Haven, Connecticut and presents the greatest artists and thinkers from around the world in performances and dialogues that heighten the senses, engage the mind, and inspire the soul. The Festival’s diverse programming and audience offer an unparalleled marketing platform for a variety of brands.

We welcome 80,000 to 100,000 people to our events each year, making us one of the premiere events in Connecticut. Thanks to our diverse programming, we have opportunities to target your sponsorship to reach the people who mean the most to you.

The Festival receives valuable feedback and insights from an independent economic and demographic survey performed by Quinnipiac University each year, and are uniquely positioned to develop sponsorships that actively target the audience you want to reach. We work with you to develop sponsorship packages that give you the best exposure to the right demographic and fit your budget.

Let us begin to customize your corporate sponsorship now. Please contact Shannon Mykins at (203) 498-3760 or smykins@artidea.org.
