 At 2015 Smoky Hill River Festival

The 39th Smoky Hill River Festival is fast approaching! The Artyopolis children’s area, a thriving metropolis of arts and entertainment, is looking for Game Street sponsors.

Non-profit and community groups are invited to apply by Monday, March 16, 2015 to provide fun and active pay-to-play games for kids to enjoy daily from Friday, June 12 through Sunday, June 14. For-profit businesses wishing to raise money for a non-profit group or charity also are encouraged to apply. Game Street features an exciting area with colorful, vibrant storefronts that resemble a traditional downtown Main Street, with a splash of color and whimsy.

Game Street sponsors will be provided with a storefront, a space, and a canopy for your club or organization to run a game. Each time the game is played, your organization earns money! Game Street is located in a high-traffic section of Artyopolis that has resulted in record revenues for sponsors in the past two years.
