Since 2015, the Edmonton Resilience Festival has welcomed individuals, businesses, and organizations to come together in building and strengthening community networks that help to foster sustainability in a unique festival format.
The Edmonton Resilience Festival is based on the principle that resilient communities are healthy and productive. The festival weaves the strands of our community into a resilient fabric through inspiration, connection, and co-creation. Each year, the festival welcomes over 600 hundred participants who actively contribute to a regenerative society through skill development and community engagement that transcends the single day festival.
We believe your organization to be aligned with our principles and philosophy. We ask that you consider the following sponsorship opportunities to further enhance the success of the festival and gain exposure for your organization.
