Become a FringeNYC Restaurant Partner!
This year, there are big changes to the restaurant sponsorship program. Not only are you our restaurant partner, but you are now our Exclusive FringeNYC, Advance Program Distribution Partners. Last year, the program was distributed as an insert in The Onion. This year, the program will be distributed exclusively in advance, at our restaurant partner locations.
Restaurant Partner Benefits
Exclusive Distribution Point for 2 weeks prior and during 16 days of FringeNYC. That’s 24 days of FringeNYC traffic. Every year, for the last 16 years, New York theater lovers have eagerly anticipated the FringeNYC Festival. Last year, to help build attendance, the entire festival program was distributed two weeks in advance to the New York public. This was extremely popular, and thousands of New Yorkers were actively seeking these programs. This year, for two weeks before the start of the festival, our restaurant partners will be the exclusive distribution points.
Inclusion in Online Map of Program Distribution Locations. We will post a link on FringeNYC.org directing people to the distribution locations. This map will be posted in early June giving an additional month of exposure prior to the actual start of distribution, so you will receive several more weeks of additional exposure. In addition to the 24 days of traffic as a distribution point, this adds 30 more days for a total of over 50 days of FringeNYC traffic!
Ongoing Banner Advertising on FringeNYC.org. Restaurant partners will be featured prominently as generous supporters of FringeNYC, with a link to your web site.
Coupon with logo printed on over 25,000 copies of the Venue Map and Performance Grid. Inserted inside of each program is a large fold out map of venues, with a grid/schedule of all of the performances in the festival. This information packed foldout is referred to over and over again by patrons throughout the entire festival. Most restaurant partners offer some sort of discount or incentive to FringeNYC patrons. Your restaurant, logo, and special offer will be prominently featured on this map and grid.
VIP Pass good for 2 tickets to EVERY SHOW in the festival. This is an exciting benefit because it’s worth more than the cost of your restaurant sponsorship! FringeNYC is made up of about 200 shows, each performing about 5 performances, spread out over about 20 venues around The Village. Each restaurant sponsor receives a VIP pass valid for two seats to every non-sold out show in the festival! You can use these free tickets for anything you want. Use them for yourself, as a perk for your friends and employees, or as a reward for your guests.
