1st Annual CT House Music Festival

Dear Donor:

Proudly, I am writing to you to announce the 1st Annual CT House Music Festival to be held in Hartford, CT's own Bushnell Park on June 17, 2018. Last year's Inaugural CT House Music Festival held on May 28, 2017 proved to be an outstanding community event with more than eight hundred adults and children enjoying an afternoon of soulful house music with CT's own club and radio disk jockeys. The CT House Music Festival allows its attendees from not only here, but also and surrounding states to engage in an expressive form of music and dance.  Supporting the CT House Music Festival means contributing to the appreciation of the arts, Bushnell Park, and the vibrancy of the downtown area as well as promoting safe, family entertainment.

The Inaugural CT House Music Festival, in part, was a success because of the business community’s generosity though monetary sponsorship. In return, we continue to offer valuable incentives that recognize your business in a variety of forms leading up to and including the day of the event. We need your help again this year. Please consider becoming a distinguished sponsor and join us as we anticipate another strong response from the community and another successful House Music Festival.
