The Eugene Celebration has been part of our community culture since 1982. The first Celebration was staged to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Hult Center for the Performing Arts and to otherwise celebrate all that makes Eugene a wonderful place to live. Over the last 30 years, the Celebration has grown to be the Southern Willamette Valley's largest annual community festival, entertaining more than 50,000 patrons over a three-day period.
The benefits of sponsoring the Celebration are many. Benefits vary, depending on the level of commitment, but can include complementary participation within the Parade, Marketplace, or Community Causeway; prominent logo placement on Eugene Celebration material, radio, web, and television advertisements, banner placement at the event; and weekend passes. Sponsors can choose to support a specific aspect of the Celebration such as the Kidzone, the Community Causeway, or one of the many stages; or sponsors can support the general production of the Celebration.
Anchored by performing stages located throughout Downtown Eugene, this multi-cultural family festival seamlessly connects a wide range of programs, venues, and community organizations that offer something for everyone.
