It’s one of Southeast Michigan’s favorite traditions: The Huron-Clinton Metroparks annual fireworks festival, bringing together so much fun and excitement it takes us four nights to get it all in. Every year, tens of thousands of our neighbors gather together – over picnics and under the stars – to enjoy this celebration of our American Independence. And you can be part of it.
Where And When:
- Sunday, June 30 Stony Creek Metropark
- Monday, July 1 Willow Metropark
- Tuesday, July 2 Hudson Mills Metropark
- Wednesday, July 3 Lake Erie Metropark
Last year, attendance across the four nights came to more than 60,000. Sponsoring our fireworks celebrations connects your company to educated, affluent families and young adults. In fact, a 2016 independent survey found that our visitors fall well above the median household income for Southeast Michigan . . . and nearly 40
percent of them have an annual household income over $100,000.
As a sponsor, your logo will be posted in our quarterly email newsletter (which has 80,000 subscribers), on our website (with more than 3.2 million hits per year) and across our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages (14,000 followers). That’s prominent exposure among some of the region’s most active and engaged consumers. It’s also a great way to show your commitment to environmental stewardship and outdoor recreation.
And, of course, the Metroparks Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization (EIN: 22-3898436). Your tax-deductible support will help us offer continuing access to open spaces, outdoor experiences and the abundant natural beauty the communities of Southeast Michigan have come to expect from their Metroparks.
