Become a sponsor and join us!

Every year the community of Blackburn Hamlet and the surrounding area enjoy our local three day fair on the first weekend in June. This exciting community event has become a must-attend weekend of fun and activities for people of all ages.

Thanks to local businesses, every year the Blackburn Funfair keeps improving – attendance grows and new memories are created. Your donations help contribute to an amazing event and this year, with your help, we hope to feature a new list of activities that will have people talking all summer!

Be a part of the fun this year by making a contribution on behalf of your business.

In return for your generosity, all contributors of the Funfair receive advertising in a variety of mediums consisting of signs at the Fair, the local BANAR newsletter, the community website, social networks, as well as our cinema screening at our Friday movie night.  Your business’ support will contribute to a community event and generate publicity in ways that conventional advertising won’t.

  • Bronze sponsors ($100 or less) will have advertising in 1 medium.
  • Silver sponsors ($101 to $499) will have advertising in 2 mediums.
  • Gold sponsors (contributions over $500) will have advertising in ALL mediums.
