West Fest Support Opportunities

West Fest is the City of West Fargo's annual community celebration that draws thousands of visitors to downtown West Fargo for parades, food, fun and more.

West Fest wouldn't be made possible without the generous support and participation from local organizations and businesses. Help us make the 27th Annual West Fest celebration the best ever by signing up to be a sponsor, parade participant or volunteer.


The West Fest Community Celebration offers a number of sponsorship opportunities for organizations of all sizes. This year's sponsorship opportunities include new digital advertising opportunities. And, Platinum, Gold and Silver level sponsors also receive a free entry into the reserved section of the annual West Fest parade.

The City of West Fargo is also open to designing custom sponsorships for organizations looking to sponsor specific events at a higher value than the Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze levels. These events include the West Fest Street Dance, Family Fun and Craft and Vendor Show. If you are looking to build a customized sponsorship opportunity, please contact Ellen Rossow.
