Download Sponsorship Application

Dear Business Owner :

Since 1973, The City of Sopchoppy, in conjunction with local citizens, have sponsored a 4th of July Celebration. The event has become one of the most anticipated festivals in the Wakulla County area, beginning with a parade through downtown Sopchoppy, and culminating in a spectacular fireworks display in the Myron B. Hodge City Park in the evening hours.

The day long event features an entertaining array of musicians and performers, food and craft vendors, and this year, will include expanded activities for children and families.

On behalf of the newly formed Sopchoppy 4th of July Committee, we are seeking sponsors to support this year's event. The existing budget does not include the finances to support continuation of the Sopchoppy 4th of July Celebration, and so we are requesting sponsorship from local municipalities and area businesses, and donations from local residents.

It is our hope that you will consider supporting this family oriented Independence Day Celebration, which brings thousands of people together, regardless of class, culture, generation, political orientation, or any other characteristic which sometimes divides people. This event, in fact, unifies every American who wishes to honor the birth of our Nation, and who wishes to pay tribute to those people who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom and those who continue to serve our country in the name of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

Sponsorship levels for this year's Sopchoppy 4th of July Festival includes:

Bronze Sponsor: $100 Receives a certificate of sponsorship, recognition by MC at park.

Silver Sponsor: $250 Receives above recognition, sponsorship on signs, free arts/craft or info booth.

Gold Sponsor: $500 Receives above recognition, and free arts/craft or food booth at park.

Platinum Sponsor: $1,000 Receives above recognition, plus mention in advertisements.

Please send your check or money order to The Sopchoppy 4th of July, c/o The City of Sopchoppy, at PO Box 1219, Sopchoppy, FL 32358. You may specify if you wish the money used for fireworks display, entertainment, or general fund.

Thank you!  The Sopchoppy 4th of July Planning Committee
