Sponsors & Partners:

Each City of Alpharetta special event has a main focus, and the non-profit partners who have on-site presence at the event will have a mission that aligns with the main focus of the City of Alpharetta special event. For example, if the event’s main focus is music, all partners’ mission and focus will be related to music. If an organization does not fit the main focus of the event, but wants to have onsite presence at the event, their option would be to become a sponsor of the event.
