Give Thanks to Our Generous Sponsors

We are looking for companies to sponsor our festival. Sponsorships start at 5000.00 and for that you get VIP seating and food and drinks. Contact us for more details.

The Bay City Fireworks Festival would not be possible without the support of so many businesses and organizations throughout the region. Though we are a completely volunteer organization, putting on such an exciting and dynamic festival year after year doesn’t come without considerable costs.
