Ottawa Visitors Center taking sponsorships now for Chris Kringle Market

Donna Reynolds at the Ottawa Visitors Center would like to hear from sponsors for this year’s Chris Kringle Market by Thursday next week. The publicity brochures go to print the next day. Getting the sponsors lined up before then gets them mentioned in the brochures and helps determine what events and features will be at the market in December.

Reynolds says it costs around $20,000 to put on the Chris Kringle market. Sponsors can support holiday music for $200, an ice sculpture for $250, and other things including the warming tent for $2,500.

CLARIFICATION: The Ottawa Visitors Center isn’t selling sponsorships, per se. It has a committee handling promotions and sponsorships on the city’s behalf.
