Port of Orillia Pirate Party ($500)
In 2018, we started the Port of Orillia Pirate Party with a basic idea to draw boaters and visitors to the Port of Orillia, and it is now an annual event. We could not have done it without the business community. In order to build a great day of music and entertainment, as well as cover the costs of marketing, we are seeking sponsors for the event. Event sponsorship is $500.00. This includes coverage in all promotional materials including the Treasure Map. The success of the day will depend on the budget with which we have to work. Our goal is to have as many visitors come to Orillia for one last blast of summer on the September long weekend.
