Airdrie Children’s Festival Announces Presenting Sponsor

Airdrie, Alberta May 18, 2018

The Airdrie Children’s Festival Society is pleased to announce Rogers Communications Inc. has been added as a presenting sponsor of this year’s Airdrie Children’s Festival. The festival is set to take place on Saturday, May 26th, 2018.

“From our first meeting, Rogers commitment to community and to families was clear,” shared Pete Lewis, chair of the Airdrie Children’s Festival Society. “Our initial conversation with them opened with ‘What do you need and how can we help?’ We couldn’t be more excited to have this significant partnership in our first year.”

The commitment from Rogers means the event will be free for everyone to attend. City TV Calgary will be onsite for the event, and Rogers will be hosting an “Inspiration Station”. This will be an opportunity to inspire and educate young attendees about the field of broadcasting.

“We’re proud and excited to sponsor the Airdrie Children’s Festival,” said Larry Goerzen, President Alberta and Prairie Region, Rogers Communications. “This event is great for the community and provides local children with a fun learning environment. We’re happy to lend a hand and are looking forward to participating.”

The day long festival featuring a Children’s Village, Inspiration Stations, the BMO Entertainment Stage and workshops will run from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Nose Creek Park in Airdrie and will be followed by the outdoor screening of the children’s animated musical SING, presented by Shilo Storey of RE/MAX. This family friendly event is free to attend and food trucks will be on site all day. Additional information regarding the Children’s Village and Inspiration Stations will be released in the coming weeks.
