StrawFest 2022

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

A Message From Our StrawFest Chair

I am delighted to be the Chair of this year’s StrawFest. Like many of you, I treasure our local landmarks — the UMLAUF being one of them. For over 30 years the UMLAUF has brought art, culture, and beauty to the city of Austin, thanks to the generous gift of Charles and his wife Angeline Umlauf. Charles Umlauf, a sculptor and professor along with wife, Angeline, loved Austin and called it their home for over half a century. When they gifted their home, garden, and sculptures they wanted to leave a place where families could enjoy the beauty of nature while having fun with the ones they love. With that in mind, StrawFest began and has now grown to be one of the largest local family fall festivals. Admission to StrawFest is 100% free to all and over 1,000 guests enjoy the day with activities that include pumpkin painting, a petting zoo, face painting, balloon art, fun games, rides, and entertainment.

 

This year’s StrawFest is October 23, and we hope you will join us by becoming a sponsor. Funds raised for StrawFest support all the UMLAUF’s family and youth programs, including StrawFest, our monthly free Family Days, our Shaping Space after-school program for kids in Title 1 schools, Summer Camp, and internship stipends and fellowships.

 

Please peek at the different ways you can become a supporter of this year’s festival and be part of this heartwarming day!
