1st Annual Desert Foothills Book Festival!

Dear Sponsor,

We are thrilled to announce the 1st Annual Desert Foothills Book Festival! Presented by The Holland Center and Desert Foothills Library, it will take place among the picturesque foothills of Cave Creek and North Scottsdale, AZ on Saturday, June 4, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Holland Center facility.

This amazing event will bring diverse Arizona authors together with adults, teens, and children in a discussion and celebration of the written word. Our goal is to create a positive environment, promoting a passion for reading and the importance of literacy in our communities. The festival aims to attract attendees from Phoenix, Scottsdale, Cave Creek, Carefree, and surrounding areas. Proceeds from this initial event will fund “Creative Kids: Tell Me a Story—a Rousing Romp through the Literary Arts” sponsored by The Holland Center. This unique and inspiring program will help kids of all ages learn the nuances of writing, illustrating, and speaking to spark their creativity and further the art of storytelling.

As this is our first event, we are seeking help with expenses and would appreciate your support. We offer several levels of sponsorship opportunities with associated benefits to businesses and individuals, which are explained on the following page.

If you would like to partner with us, please complete the attached sponsorship form and mail it, along with your check payable to The Holland Center, to The Holland Center, 34250 N 60th St., Scottsdale, AZ 85266.
