Incite. Inspire. Come Together.

Each year, the Queer Arts Festival attracts over 6,500 festival participants and attendees who help enrich Vancouver as a leading destination in the billion dollar LGBT2SIQ tourism industry, including over two million Canadians who identify as queer.

Reach this growing community by making a public investment in one of Canada’s signature spotlights on queer transdisciplinary arts, culture and history. Opportunities for partnership include full-colour Festival collateral advertising, product sampling, special events hosting, and interaction with audiences aged 18 to 80.

With over 14 million media impressions and more than 33,000 unique visitors to our online channels in 2015, the Festival is well-positioned to help strengthen your profile and brand locally, nationally and beyond. Contact us today and we will be happy to design a custom package that meets your sponsorship and marketing goals.
