2024 SPONSORSHIP PACKAGE

About The Festival




In 2023, the team behind Halo Heats executed the Heatseeker Hot Sauce Festival, a first-of-its-kind event in Windsor-Essex.


Our event was met with tremendous success. We saw close to 1,000 attendees and had more than 20 vendors join us from across Ontario (all of whom are eager to return this year). We pre-sold hundreds of tickets, received lots of publicity through interviews with local media, and executed a strong marketing plan on social media.


With our date, time, and location at the Pelissier Street Parking Garage, we creatively transformed an underutilized space in the downtown core and strategically leveraged the bustling foot traffic of the Downtown Windsor Farmers Market, which we will be doing again this year.


We invite you to join us in heating up the heart of our beautiful city and sponsor our 2024 festival!

The event organizers will not be liable for lost, stolen, or damaged property or for personal injuries to the sponsor's employees or representatives. Sponsors are encouraged to carry their own insurance to cover their personnel and materials.

Force Majeure: In the event that the festival is canceled or postponed due to circumstances beyond the control of the event organizers (such as natural disasters, government restrictions, or public health emergencies), the organizers will provide options for sponsorship rollover to a rescheduled or future event or partial refunds, subject to expenses already incurred.

Compliance: Sponsors agree to comply with all local laws, ordinances, and regulations pertaining to health, safety, and public order. Any failure to comply may result in the termination of the sponsorship agreement without refund.
