Sponsorship Opportunities

The Kent Creativity Festival provides an opportunity for people of all ages and skill levels to come together to create, share and explore the creation of all forms of art and is free for everyone. Guest artists lead interactive creative activities that engage and inspire visitors to explore their own creativity and participate in the joy and transformative power of making art and sharing it with others. In 2017 there were 2,500 visitors who participated!

The festival is the result of a group of local stakeholders, including Kent State University, the City of Kent, Main Street Kent, local non-profit organization, Kent business and residents. To ensure a unique and engaging experience for attendees, the festival planning committee is seeking support from local civic-minded organizations that may have an interest in making a contribution to the festival.
