Sponsorships are available for this year’s Alabama Blueberry Festival in several levels for each portion of the event, which will be held Saturday, June 18.

For anyone who would like to be a Platinum Sponsor, the cost is $1,500 which entitles the sponsor the opportunity to get the most out of the investment. Each opportunity grants the sponsor the maximum exposure to those attend the festival and the area residents.
