Sponsorship opportunities for The Bus Fair
Why should you be interested in being a sponsor of The Bus Fair? For starters, we've spent the past 6 years building a completely organic audience of over 100,000 people. This is a combined number from Instagram, Facebook and our newsletter subscribers from our parent company Bus Life Adventure which is a community/website for the school bus conversion lifestyle. We kept getting inquires about "skoolie" specific festivals and realized we needed to create one.
If you offer a product or service that relates to travel, exploration, minimalism, tiny living or the nomadic lifestyle then we'd love to talk to you about how we can help promote your brand through The Bus Fair.
As for event attendees we're marketing towards those who are interested in doing a bus conversion on their own, already are in the middle of a bus conversion or are just curious about tiny living. In year one we saw 1,200+ people show up from 27 different states and 3 different Canadian provinces. Check out the full report and the impact The Bus Fair and sponsors have on the economy of Oakridge.
Here's what a few of our sponsors from 2019 had to say about the event:
"After sponsoring The Bus Fair, Critical Source had a 15% increase in sales. We love the Oakridge community and will continue to support this amazing event inspired by wanderlust."
- Lauren Boone, General Manager, Critical Source
“The Bus Fair was an amazing event put on by grass roots folks that care about the Tiny Living community - not some business trying to make a buck. We’ve attended several similar events and the Bus Fair had a much higher ROI with leads and networking than an other event. Plus the Mountain Biking in Oakridge is premo! We’ll definitely be back!”
"The Bus Fair is the best venue for connecting with the most influential names in the Skoolie lifestyle. Everything was well organized and fun. The food carts were top notch. We will be back."
- Garret Towne, AM Solar President
"Sponsoring the Bus Life Fair was an incredible, grassroots experience. Having the opportunity to be directly amongst an active and engaged group that totally fits our target audience is always great for a brand. It was awesome to have the ability to have intimate conversations and feel the hype throughout the day!"
- McKayla Crump, Art Director, EYCE Molds
