I am involved in my local bike club and have some event planning experience so they have asked me to work on our Fat Tire Fastival this year. What makes a great Festival to you guys? Sponsor? Large number of people? Food? Swag? Trails?
We would like to see 200-250 people this year. I want to make the event as fun as possible but am not sure what will appeal to the masses. I am looking at sponsorships for the donation of product for raffles and such and was curious if you guys had suggestions of places that were good sponsors.
Any input is welcome. Also how much is a festival worth? If we are talking 2.5 days (Friday night, Saturday and Sunday) including 5 meals (2 dinners, 2 breakfasts, and 1 lunch). We are looking at about $35/person. Please gove me some constructive input.
