BECOME A SPONSOR

Exciting things are happening with the Riverlights Music Festival! Now in our third year, we have changed our ticketing to a “free plus VIP” model. This means that general admission is complimentary to the public, while patrons also have the option of purchasing a VIP pass that will enhance their festival experience. The Festival has partnered with South Bend’s Best.Week.Ever. and will be marketed as one of the featured events during the week-long celebration.

Starting this year, the Festival will feature a more robust experience for the entire family that includes food, drink, and art vendors. There will be children’s  play areas and activities to entertain the young ones as their parents enjoy the best that South Bend’s music scene has to offer. We invite you to help support South Bend’s up-and-coming music and art community by becoming a sponsor of the Riverlights Music Festival. Your community investment will help strengthen the festival as both a platform for the musical arts and a source of superb family-friendly entertainment in South Bend.
