How to Support Olympia Arab Festival
We need your support! As a cosponsor you can be a part of creating a memorable celebration of Arab culture that will fill The Olympia Center with performers, vendors, Arab-Americans from our local area and across the state, and so many others from our community and beyond who come to be part of the sharing and festivities. Your support will provide for the staffing and organization, the promotion, and the realization of this joyful gathering in downtown Olympia. Can you help us? We would love to include you as a cosponsor for Shuruq IV!
For this year’s festival to be accessible to all and to have the greatest impact, there will be no admission fee. Expenses for the venue, performers, promotion, and staff support are significant. We must have financial help from individual, business, and organization cosponsors to make this possible, and time is short. We simply can’t make this happen without help from our community businesses and organizations.
Businesses, organizations, and individuals are all welcome to cosponsor and will be recognized in event media, programs, web presence, and more!
