Become a Buy Local Bash Sponsor

Come take part in SyracuseFirst’s Annual Buy Local Bash! Going into its 8th year, the Buy Local Bash brings 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 off Buy Local Month, an effort to increase support for Local Independents during the holiday season. This year’s event will be held at the CNY Regional Market (F Shed – 2100 Park St., Syracuse) Monday, November 20th. Last year’s event attracted over 700 people with more than 115 vendors! Help us drive more customers to your business and remind them that supporting local businesses creates jobs in Central New York!

The Buy Local Bash is your chance to put your business in front of thousands of potential clients and customers. 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.
