See what our sponsors are saying:

Emerald Queen Casino:  I would like to thank you for a fantastic festival season. The Taste of Tacoma® was as wonderful as ever and was enhanced by some additions. Both events were a showcase for your versatility, perseverance, flexibility, and pure tenacity as a company and as a crew. The lay-out was the best I've ever seen as a visitor or sponsor and I'd appreciate it if you forwarded my sincerest admiration to the individual or individuals responsible for laying out the event out so effectively.


Boeing Employees Credit Union (BECU): I have had the opportunity to work with Festivals Inc. now for several years and it is always a pleasure to work with them.  I appreciate their professionalism and flexibility.  I know that they are always open to new ideas and work very, very hard at creating a true partnership.  I know when I work with them that the outcome will benefit my business and I look forward to working with them for many years to come.

Washington’s Lottery: A part of the Taste of Tacoma for nine years. This festival has good food, great music and is really embraced by the community. If you haven’t attended yet, you are missing out on a really fun experience. If you want to become a vendor, Brett Gorrell is fantastic to work with, and does a great job making this festival the best that it can be.

Heritage Distilling Co. (HDC): was proud to have our Batch No. 12 products part of the Taste of Tacoma® and Bite of Seattle® events. The Festivals, Inc. team was exceptionally organized and helpful throughout the entire process and we can't wait to work with them on future events.



Finlayson Family Chiropractic: Festival Inc. was without a doubt the best sponsorship we have worked with thus far. Brett Gorrell and the entire event staff were amazing. Everything that was promised to us was in fact the truth. We also appreciated how easy it was to call or email with questions and concerns, and receive a quality response in a timely manner. We look forward to working with them again soon!


Crystal Springs Water: First and foremost I would like to say “Thank-YOU”…and that comes from myself and Crystal Springs Sales team.  You and your team made all the events we participated in this summer absolutely awesome.  With all the demands you guys have to manage during these events we never go without any request we may have being fulfilled.  Looking forward to working with you for years to come.

Advil Liqui-Gels:  From the moment we arrived at the Taste of Tacoma® until our final load-out, the event was a great success. Brett Gorrell and his hardworking staff were very friendly and accommodating every step of the way. The atmosphere was lively and the attendance was huge, making it an ideal venue to distribute Advil® Liqui-Gels®. Festivals Inc. eliminated our headaches, making it easy for us to eliminate everyone else’s!


Verizon Wireless (On behalf of MarketingWerks): Festivals professionally manages its events to make it easy for Verizon Wireless to give its customers an opportunity to learn more about choosing wireless services. Their attention to detail and follow up makes it a pleasure to do business with them. They consistently go above and beyond their responsibilities to augment our visibility and engage us as a partner in event success.
The Taste of Tacoma® is a highlight each year for Verizon Wireless to share our latest
products and services in a much anticipated event atmosphere of energy and opportunities.

Morning Star Farms (on behalf of ARC Marketing): This was our second year at the Taste of Tacoma® with the Morningstar Farms Veggie Burger Fan Van, and once again, it was a huge success! We gave away so many samples, our staff could hardly keep up. This is a great event for us; huge attendance with right-on-target demos. And Festivals, Inc. (especially Brett Gorrell) always makes sure that the process is smooth from beginning to end, which makes it so easy for us and our client.


Tums Freshers (on behalf of OBO Activation): We travel to over 20 similar festivals each year and are thrilled to say the combination of the Taste of Tacoma® and Bite of Seattle® was by far our best activation to date.

In launching a new product for our client with these Sponsorships, we felt the brand was recognized
and well received by the consumers in attendance at both. - Ann Defforge / owner of OBO Activation
