Sponsorship Information

We are excited to invite you to Gorman’s 4th Annual Savor the Flavor of Texas Festival on Saturday, March 14, 2020 from 5pm until 10pm.  However, you are welcome to come early and stay late if you wish.  This will be a venue to honor Texas home grown and hand crafted products.  We are in search of sponsors for our sample tasting area.

Gorman is a small rural town at the base of the Palo Pinto mountain range rich in agricultural heritage; known in our heyday for being the Peanut Capital of the Southwest.  You can find us 30 miles west of Stephenville at the intersection of State Highway 6 and Farm-to-Market 8 on the southeast edge of Eastland County.  We are a close supportive community working together to revitalize our historic downtown.

Gorman’s Savor the Flavor of Texas Festival will provide a place, and an audience, for small business owners of home grown, hand crafted, Made-in-Texas products to showcase their hard work.  We are a 501c3 non-profit corporation and all proceeds from this event will directly benefit the Gorman CO-OP (Community Outdoor Outreach Program).

The Iron Rose is the venue for this year’s festival giving us shelter from the unpredictable Texas spring weather.  We will have live music, talented and creative merchants available for shopping delight, and a diverse array of food vendors to satisfy nearly any taste bud.

We also encourage guest to visit our beautiful Blackwell pocket park two doors down which was created by two high school seniors, Kacee Dodd and Myra Ramirez, two years ago from the rubble of a burned building.  As well as stroll down to view our newly revitalized city park at the end of the block made possible from many community contributions lead by another high school senior, Isiaah Landa, this past summer.

Our goal in coming years is to sell wrist bands for sampling of our sponsors wine, beer, cheese, jerky, honey, and so much more from all over the great state of Texas.  This year, as we further build a name for ourselves, we are staying simple and keeping the sampling direct with the vendors.  Wineries will be able to sell and serve by the tasting, glass, or bottle in accordance with their own TABC certification.  The festival has also obtained a special event TABC permit.

As a fundraiser for our community we will be selling Savor The Flavor Of Texas logo stemless wineglasses to be used for the wine tastings, and potentially stainless steel logo cups for micro-brew beer samples.

In exchange for sponsoring samples, you will be provided:

  • 12 x 12 booth space to display and sell your products
    • Spaces will be designated and labeled for use in accordance with TABC regulation
  • Advertisement through social media, flyers, and local news leading up to the event
  • Recognition as event sponsor on our website, social media, and event program

Alternate sponsorship options:

  • Silent Auction Item
  • Ultimate Raffle Item
  • Direct product or monetary donation

Please return your commitment form no later than the Feb 15, 2020 so we may begin promoting your business and sponsorship on our various advertisement mediums.

**Vendors will still be accepted after this date, but name and logo recognition may not make it to printed mediums.

Thank you for your support,

Gorman Community Event Committee
