2023 Topeka IrishFest Sponsorship Opportunities

The 2023 Topeka IrishFest is going to be the premier event at Evergy Plaza in March 2023. The IrishFest and IrishFest 5K are the heart of the St. Patrick’s Day celebration for our city and surrounding areas. We are planning on celebrating on March 18, 2023 with you and all of our friends at Evergy Plaza.

Continuing to be recognized as one of the best places to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Kansas, our event features one of the first 5K runs of the season, live Irish entertainment, family fun, authentic handmade Irish food, vendors, crafts, and domestic beer throughout the day. One of the top ethnic events in Northeast Kansas draws from Topeka, Manhattan, Lawrence and Kansas City, and in conjunction with the St. Patrick’s Parade, attracts over 70,000 people to downtown Topeka to celebrate this glorious holiday.

We invite you to be a part of the 2023 celebration. We will work with you to determine what level of sponsorship works best for you or your business.

Here are some options:
– Traditional corporate sponsorship levels
– Opportunities to sponsor a specific item or items
– Sponsorship of one of the bands or entertainers with recognition on stage throughout the festival.
