The Carolina BrewMasters understand that Charlotte Oktoberfest Sponsors play a large role in our success. Over the years we have made every effort to ensure that our sponsors receive impressionable advertising and marketing media for the money, products or services that are donated to our festival. We offer a wide range of sponsorships based on your economic situation; this year we have additional sponsorship levels for those requiring more economical ways to participate in our festival.

Sponsorship in our festival promotes your business and helps support our charities as festival proceeds are all donated locally. We utilize a variety of methods to provide exposure for your business and your sponsorship will be noticed by 6000 festival participants. Additionally, our festival patrons comprise a broad, lucrative demographic with an age range from 21 to retirement.

Four main levels of sponsorship, as well as 3 more economical packages, are available for your consideration. Details of each sponsorship level are outlined below. If your company would like wide ranging publicity at a reasonable, cost-effective price please consider the Charlotte Oktoberfest Beer Festival.

The Carolina BrewMasters thank you greatly for your consideration in helping to make our 16th Annual Oktoberfest surpass all others and to help raise funds for three worthwhile charities.
