Summer Concert Series
Sponsorship and Nonprofit Opportunities for 2024
Sponsorship for Basalt's Summer Concert Series fosters name recognition with your generous support of local nonprofits and our community. The result is high exposure and positive marketing for your business. There are a total of 10 concerts running from July 19 - August 28, 2024.
Nonprofits may benefit from operating a beverage and/or concession booth at a show. Nonprofits may apply individually or partner with a potential sponsor. Nonprofits must apply for a liquor license if running the beverage booth and have at least one volunteer server who is TIPS certified.
This presentation includes more information about sponsorship levels, nonprofit participation, and additional support opportunities.

We encourage you to visit our local restaurants before, during, and after the shows for drinks and dinner. You can find a complete list of downtown Basalt menus from restaurants that are open during the evenings here.
No outside alcohol is permitted inside the concert venue. You may bring food and non-alcoholic beverages into the concert.

The concerts are ideal picnic spots. You may bring coolers and meals from home and non-alcoholic beverages. Beverages must be in unopened, sealed containers. Consider bringing a blanket or low chairs and appropriate clothing for rain and colder evening temperatures.
