We are asking for your help in growing the Midsommar Swedish Festival in central Aroostook.

Sponsorships are now available to your business, corporate, or community organization or even to you as an individual. Choose from several sponsorship levels to match your marketing or charitable goals.

In addition to prominent co-branding, your organization will get ad space to communicate its message to our local and out-of-town audience. See the enclosed table to see all benefits of sponsorship.

Orust, Sweden, dancers
visit New Sweden in 2006

This year, the printed booklet carrying your ad expands from 2000 to 6000 copies and is distributed through the Aroostook Republican newspaper (pending funding -- we need to raise an additional $500 over what was raised last year to have the Midsommar booklet printed and inserted into the Aroostook Republican.) Your logo and/or ad will be featured here on the new www.MaineSwedishColony.info web site until next spring. This site is targeted at visitors and is rich in content. We are now getting over 800 web visitors a week.

We have gathered several new activities events under our promotional umbrella and hope to add more activities in all areas associated with Swedish settlers: New Sweden, Stockholm, Connor, Westmanland, Woodland, Caribou, Madawaska Lake, and Perham.

Your sponsorship will go towards Midsommar programming and year-round preservation of local history and culture. One of our new projects is the restoration of the historic Clase-Magnusson Log Home just down from the museum in New Sweden.

 

Please consider supporting Midsommar at the level that is best for you. See you at Midsommar.
