SAHUARITA, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The 10th Annual Sahuarita Pecan Festival does not take place until November, but the Green Valley Pecan Company is accepting applications for festival sponsors right now.

This one-day, family focused, community oriented event is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 10, and draws some 25,000 visitors every year.  Food vendors, shopping with local artisans, Arabian horse demonstrations and much more are featured during the Sahuarita Pecan Festival.

"This year we're celebrating our 10th Anniversary—that's 10 years of giving back to the community and providing a full day of family friendly activities, rooted in the history of this region. We're excited to share the Sahuarita Pecan Festival with local businesses through various sponsorship opportunities. Nov. 10 is a day for all of us to show our support of our community," said Paula Beemer, Sahuarita Pecan Festival Coordinator, in a recent news release.

Sponsorship is the perfect way to reach the growing, prosperous market of young families and active adults in the Santa Cruz River Valley. Sponsors will be part of an aggressive marketing campaign utilizing Festival media partners, digital and print advertising, and social media promotion, according to a Green Valley Pecan Company news release. Sponsorship levels range from $750 up to $10,000; the number of sponsorship slots is limited. The Festival sponsorship deadline for final media exposure is Sept. 14, 2018.
