As a Festival partner, we ask that you actively promote both the festival and your individual event on social media and in your communities. This guide will offer a few tips and tricks to help you make the most out of your marketing efforts. The Science Festival will also send you program booklets, posters, flyers, and other festival promotional materials that we will ask you to distribute around your communities and at your event.
Follow the Science Festival on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Host Event News Release
Build you own new release for your event. Use this word document as a model and replace the keywords in the brackets with the information for your event. Send it to your local news organizations one week before your event. Check media calendar deadlines for possibly longer lead times. Follow up to ensure the release was received and to answer any questions.
There are plenty of free online community calendars all across the state. Be sure to post in these ahead of time to help promote your event.
Use Your Networks!
Be sure to share information about your events and the festival with your friends, family, colleagues, and students.
