FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

Banners are boring, so we dreamed up a way for our audience to engage with your brand in a more meaningful way.

Imagine a scavenger hunt for words. We sprinkle the park with gently illuminated signs, each containing a word or phrase and a byline about the contributing sponsor. Audience members are challenged to collect all of the words and use them to compose a poem, which they submit online.

Each week, a panel of judges selects a winning poem, which is read aloud from the stage by a renowned poet during the following week’s show.

For those who crave online engagement, our premier “Heron” level sponsors can have a URL and QR code included on their sign, directing audience members to visit their website to discover Bonus Words.

Submissions that include Bonus Words are eligible for special prizes that relate to the sponsor and their brand.

We want our audience to get excited and celebrate the generosity of our sponsors, so we’ve dropped the list and made it entertainment!

Each week, a performer will announce our sponsors as part of a lyrical performance – singing, rapping, or laying down prose that recognizes each organization and tells the audience something about them. It will be a fun and engaging part of the show, not your standard obligatory long-list.
