Sponsorship Opportunities

Texas Independence Day Celebration (closest weekend to March 2)
Fireworks on the Brazos (4th of July)

Both ongoing and special event sponsorships are integral to the mission of the Association. The ongoing sponsorship categories and the benefits to our sponsors are outlined on the Membership Benefits page. We also offer sponsorship opportunities for the Association’s two major special events held annually: Texas Independence Day Celebration and Fireworks on the Brazos.

Texas Independence Day Celebration: Each year, the weeks leading up to the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence of Texas on March 2, 1836—known to Texas history buffs as the “Texas Independence Season”—provide great momentum to our goals of public awareness and education. “Texas Independence Day Celebration” is an annual two-day celebration the weekend closest to March 2, on the expansive 293-acre park grounds; in 2015 the event will occur on Saturday, February 28 and Sunday, March 1. The birthday celebration is attended by thousands, and features live music, food, traditional crafts, living history presentations, firing demonstrations, historical encampments and commemorative programs.

Fireworks on the Brazos: Presented by H-E-B, the annual 4th of July celebration at the park includes a day filled with family activities from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Highlights of the celebration are the free music concert from a well-known Texas band from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the park’s amphitheater, followed by a fireworks extravaganza with patriotic music at approximately 9:30 p.m. Buses run constantly from 1:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. to shuttle guests to the different areas of the park at no charge.

As a sponsor of either of these events, you gain exposure to its target markets through recognition in all our marketing materials for these signature events. We will be proactive in marketing you and your business or organization with quality advertising and public relations that provides added value for your investment. For additional information on how you can become a sponsor, please call 979.830.1824 or email: office@wheretexasbecametexas.org.
