Sponsorship Opportunities

Take part in SyracuseFirst’s Virtual Buy Local Bash Marketplace as a sponsor!

Small Leaf Divider

For eleven years, the Buy Local Bash has brought community members and local merchants together for a one-of-a-kind social, shopping and tasting event to highlight the locally owned, independent businesses of Central New York. This unique and festive fundraising event helps to spread awareness and support for SyracuseFirst’s mission of educating the community about the importance of buying LOCAL while also kicking o Buy Local Month, an effort to increase support for Local Independents during the holiday season. This year’s event will be a little different in light of the effects of COVID-19. Because we are unable to gather, we will be hosting a VIRTUAL Buy Local Bash Marketplace that will remain open for one week. Instead of interacting with potential customers and clients face-to-face, we will be driving them to your website or your storefront.

The Virtual Buy Local Bash Marketplace is still is your chance to put your business in front of thousands of potential clients and customers. Remind them that supporting local businesses creates jobs in Central New York!

As an added bonus, with these customizable sponsorship options you will have visibility on multiple media vehicles. We’re building a tradition that strengthens local economies, expands employment, and nurtures a sense of community.
