Corporate Sponsorship

The Festival is a year-round celebration of performing arts, compelling conversations, international collaboration, and community enrichment that culminates in a two-week festival each summer. Every year, the International Festival of Arts & Ideas takes over the theaters, open spaces, and courtyards throughout 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 Festivalā€™s diverse programming and audience offer an unparalleled marketing platform for a variety of brands.

The Festival welcomes more than 100,000 people to events each year, making it one of the premiere events in Connecticut. Thanks to our diverse programming, we can offer 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. With the information provided through this comprehensive effort, the Festival is uniquely positioned to customize sponsorships that actively target the specific audience you want to reach. Our team will work with you to develop sponsorship packages that give you the best exposure to the right demographic and fit your budget.
