Sponsor the 2022 Windsor Monarch Festival


The Windsor Monarch Festival kicking off on July 9th featuring the Upcycled Pollinator Planter Challenge with Chairy Orchard!

The whole festival takes place July 9 - 22, 2022 which are the dates of the Upcycled Pollinator Planter Challenge viewing, voting, and then the auction!

Your business will be featured on:
- the large sign on the planter itself for two weeks (see video below)
- the First Town Downtown website
- the First Town Downtown Facebook page
- the Windsor Monarch Project Facebook page
- the interactive digital map
- the printed map featured in the Windsor Journal newspaper
That's a lot of press for a $75 sponsorship -
or get highlighted EVEN MORE as an event sponsor!



Watch the video of the 2021 Challenge to see some of the creative planters and how the planter designers and sponsors are recognized on the beautiful signage and online: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLa27YRcoDM
