Festival of Lights & Tree Lighting Sponsorship Packet

  1. Greetings!

     We will soon be celebrating the City of Brighton’s 28th annual Festival of Lights Parade and Tree Lighting ceremony! We are excited to begin preparation for this community favorite event, and are reaching out to you, our new and returning supporters, because without you, this event isn’t possible.

     Two weekends of special events make this a great opportunity for sponsors to engage with the community. Our tree lighting ceremony will be held on Saturday, December 2, with a live concert, and kids’ activities. The following Saturday, December 9, is the main attraction, the Festival of Lights Parade.

    While the city hosts this event, we could not accomplish the city’s mission of enhancing the quality of life for those in the community, with this free event, without help from our partners.  In the following pages, you will see an explanation of various sponsorship levels for the 2023 Festival of Lights events.  Each level of sponsorship offers different opportunities for your organization to gain exposure in the Brighton community.  Based on the sponsorship you chose, you could be featured on the City of Brighton website, social media, other local media, in press releases, on flyers, and any additional marketing done.

    Please consider becoming involved and using this unique sponsorship opportunity to make contacts and build relationships within Brighton!  Both monetary and in-kind donations for the events are welcomed and accepted.  All commitments are due by Friday, November 3, 2023.  If you have suggestions or ideas, please contact Ali Boonstra, Special Events Coordinator, at 303-655-2218 or

    We are excited to partner with you on this wonderful holiday event for the city and thank you for your commitment to the 2023 Festival of Lights Parade and Tree Lighting Ceremony!
