As you know, the First Annual DeSoto Living! Festival on April 1st, 2017 was a resounding success! We were THRILLED at the vendor participation (110 booths sold PLUS 13 out of 15 food trucks sold out!) and the community support. DeSoto Police Chief Joe Costa and Officer Williams estimated our crowd at “…easily more than 2,000”. For a new event, these are remarkable numbers!


For 2018, the Festival will be held on Saturday, April 7th, at DeSoto East Middle School. We are excited to announce that FOUR of our SEVEN Zone Sponsors have already confirmed their participation again next year. And, many of our vendors / businesses / organizations are already starting to contact us to reserve their booth or food truck space. It’s encouraging and exhilarating to receive such incredibly positive feedback from our participants.


We have kept the price of the Zone Sponsorship at $3,500 but we are already considering additional marketing opportunities to highlight the major sponsors even more for 2018 – and to give you even more public recognition in the region. As soon as you make your commitment (even verbal), we will add your logo as we roll out our initial marketing and promotions for next year’s event.


We hope you will partner with us for the Second Annual DeSoto Living! Festival on Apr 7, 2018 as we urge our citizens (and visitors) to "Shop Local" as we GROW our region’s economic well-being.  If you are ready to move forward and reserve your vendor space, fill out the form below or contact Brittani Washington, Marketing Director, at marketing@desotochamber.org or call the DeSoto Chamber at 972.224.3565.
