Mermaid Parade Sponsorship Opportunities

Join us for the World's Largest Art Parade!

We are currently seeking sponsors for the 34th Annual Mermaid Parade on June 18, 2016. An annual event, the Parade draws over half-a-million young, hip tastemakers and we would love to give you an opportunity to get in front of them.

If you would like work with us on getting your company in front of our audiences and help support one of New York’s most beloved events, please don’t hesitate to contact us via email info@coneyisland.com or by phone at 718-372-5159.

As a sponsor you can expect extensive press coverage surrounding the Parade, acknowledgment of your support and prominent logo placement at the parade, online and in all printed materials. In addition to signs and logo placement, we give you the opportunity to be the star of the show with VIP placement in the Parade itself for a float or marching group. We’ll also work closely with you to ensure that your product is dynamically presented to our audience and that they recognize you as a supporter of one of Brooklyn’s most cherished and unique events.
