GROWTH & PROGRESSION: This event has grown in the last several years quite significantly. From a few years back in 2012 we had an estimated 40 attendees, then in 2013, 140 attendees, in 2014 we had over 200, and in 2015 we reached 400, followed by over 800 attendees in 2016. At this rate of growth we're expecting to see around 1,000 + attendees for TrailFest 2017.
Each dollar generated at our events go right back into supporting our sport directly. We invest in community OHV related grants, to preserve and develop, along with OHV education courses, videos, and more which helps to protect the access to our trails and extend the life of our sport for the entire industry. In fact we're the only organization that directly invests all of our event proceeds right back into our local trails, parks, and riders within our region through our grant program. We may not be the biggest event in the region but we do the most to protect the sport we share passion for in our own neighborhood!
EXPOSURE: Lot's of planning is already in effect and the plan is to go big this year. Tom Pickett (owner of AOP) has provided the entire park for SFWDA exclusively all weekend this year and we plan to take full advantage of it. We're planning to have more Vendor exposure than ever before at TrailFest this year. We plan to have dedicated Vendor Row front and center right next to our Main Events Pavilion. This area will be blocked off for only foot traffic and even more food vendors this year will be right in the middle of the action so we will maximize your brand exposure during the event.
BENEFIT: With plans to make this the largest TrafilFest event yet you wont want to miss out on it. Hundreds of passionate enthusiasts in a very intimate environment will prove to provide opportunities to connect with your customers directly as the event last through the whole weekend and many of the attendees are camping on-site. Network with other off road businesses, fabricators, repair shops, and manufacturers alike.
COST : The only requirement for entry as a vendor this year will be maintaining an Active SFWDA Supporting Business Membership. The cost of this membership is only $100 and is good for one year from the date of activation. For more on benefits and to register as a business member and pre-qualify for vendor access; click here.
CONTRIBUTION: We are planing a raffle Saturday night after dinner and announcements and before our Live Music and Bonfire. The funds from this event raffle are one of the primary revenue sources for our association. Each item donated and each dollar contributed by attendees go directly back to SFWDA and funds our core mission.
