Cirque Carnival gearing up

Needs community support

Dear YSAC Community,

The YS Experience Steering Committee, which is organizing the 2012 Cirque Carnival, asks you to support this important and exciting event. In past years, the Yellow Springs community has worked collaboratively to execute a highly successful celebration, creating a great weekend of entertainment for over 2,000 Villagers and Visitors.

The 3rd Annual Cirque Carnival will be held on Friday, July 20 from 3pm to midnight, and the YS Experience Cirque extends through July 21 & 22, offering a variety of activities (see attached “2012 YSE Cirque Events”) for adults, youth & families to enjoy. This Event will provide local & regional community members with a fun-filled weekend involving performing artists, musicians, face painters, ethnic food vendors, local artisans and more. For further details, check out or

There are three ways that you can support the 2012 YS Experience Cirque Carnival:
  1. Sponsorship – We are looking for few more Sponsors so that this event will be a “super” success. Currently, we have these opportunities:  One Main Event Sponsor, donating $900 to support the Ring of Amazement (featuring the Cincinnati Circus). Your logo will be prominently featured on all marketing collateral (posters, banners, print media ads, website, etc.), including the Chamber’s major ad in the Dayton City Paper YS Insert. Five Supporting Event Sponsors, donating $300-$500 to support activities such as the Beer Garden, Hydration Stations and other key venues. Your logo will be included on most PR, including posters, website & social media. Sponsors can prominently display their banners at the event venue that they are supporting. All sponsors will receive 10 free entrance bands for the 2012 Cirque Carnival and will be specifically recognized & publicly thanked for their support. Sponsors have the option of operating a game/activity booth at the event. There is limited booth space, and all booths must be approved by the YS Experience Steering Committee. Please contact Brian Housh at or 614-634-8531 to confirm sponsorship (the earlier, the better so that we can fully promote your organization & its support).
  2. Raffle Prizes – Donate prizes for the Cirque Raffle, with all proceeds supporting the YS Arts Council and future YS Experiences. No item is too big or too small! This is a great way to promote your business and support the Event. Please contact Bob Swaney at or 937-767-2461 if you are able to provide prize donations.
  3. Assistance – There are a variety of ways for you to get involved in this Event, whether it is selling raffle buttons, helping at the gate, serving at the beer garden or volunteering on some other level. This is your YS Experience Cirque Carnival, so get involved! If you are interested in volunteering your time, please contact Mindy Harney at or 937-474-7598.

Please contribute to this great celebration of the Arts in our community. YS Experience Events help Yellow Springs and the region to thrive!
