Advertising & Promotions

Set-up Day Interview with Director Ruth Gore on Channel 7 News.

Rio Grande Festivals excels in advertising and promoting each show extensively through TV, radio, billboards and newspaper, as well as e-mail blasts, social media, and promotional ticket giveaways. Publicity efforts pay off when news teams regularly cover the festival, news anchors talk up the show, and the newspaper features the festival and its artists. Artists are highlighted on our billboards and are given a wide variety of promotional tools. Our team makes it a top priority to attract a buying public and deliver financial results for exhibitors.
