Events such as the Cowboy Way Fest 2017 depend on the generosity and volunteer spirit of our Patrons. We are so very grateful. Without such support the Museum could not exist. The Cowboy Way is integral to our American Culture. Cowboys and cowboy-isms are interwoven in the very fabric of our society. We hardly realize what a strong influence the Cowboy Way still maintains today. Cowboys and Indians are uniquely American. Although kin to the Vaquero and Outback settlers, the whole World looks to the USA for the iconic Cowboy and Indian.
In order to present a top-notch event to our Southern Oklahoma Region a minimum budget of $20,000 for the Cowboy Way Fest 2017 is required. These funds cover airfare, hotel, & meals for the celebrities, payments for the bands/performers, event programs, and advertising costs. And of course, the Museum hopes to raise funds beyond the event costs in order to help the Museum remain an anchor to our community.
Event Sponsorships of $10,000 to $250 are available. Click here for details on the levels. All event sponsors will have the right of first refusal for all future Cowboy Way Fests and we will do all that we can to advertise our sponsors appropriately. We Thank You in advance for your generosity. Funds will be needed starting early in January 2017 to cover airfare and 50% of performers’ booking fees. The balance will be needed no later than the first of April 2017. Please provide a Letter of Sponsorship Intent at your earliest convenience as bands and celebrities are quickly becoming booked for next Summer.
Thank you for your time and thoughtful consideration. With great community leaders like you, we are able to keep Carter County and Southern Oklahoma a strong, robust community.
