Sponsor an ad in the Official Program Guide.

The Montana Folk Festival sells sponsorship ads in its official program guide, which is inserted in periodicals throughout Montana before the festival and is available on the festival site. While larger sponsors receive advertising in the program guide as a benefit, others choose to take advantage of this opportunity and still receive sponsorship benefits at a more affordable level.
