Local dealership a major sponsor of three-day event, Sept. 30-Oct. 2
Bensenville, Ill.— The Bensenville Park District announced Grand Subaru has stepped up as a major sponsor of the Harvest Fest, which takes place Friday through Sunday, September 30-October 2, at Fischer Farm, 16W680 Grand Avenue.
“Grand Subaru always loves being a part of community events, but the Bensenville Park District has truly gone above and beyond for Harvest Fest this year,” says Grand Subaru General Manager Ryan Drouin. “We’re super excited for a fun family weekend and happy that we can give back to the same neighbors who have done so much for us.”
In addition to major financial support, Grand Subaru is helping to promote Harvest Fest at the dealership, through its website, email and social media.
“We recognize Grand Subaru’s many contributions to the Bensenville community in terms of not only taxes contributed to local governments, but also donations to charitable organizations and participation in community activities,” says Bensenville Park District Executive Director Joe Vallez, citing the dealership’s support of Earth Day at Fischer Farm in April 2022. “We are pleased to partner with such a fine organization to help us elevate one of our signature events!”
The dealership, located just a few blocks from the farm at 125 W. Grand Ave. in Bensenville, will operate “Subie World,” a family activity area named for its lovable mascot that includes access to an animal petting area and other activities. The dealership will also be a remote event parking location with shuttle service to and from Fischer Farm during Harvest Fest.
Last year’s single-day Harvest Fest event drew several thousand people and featured live music, food and drink and family-friendly activities such as kite flying, goat feeding, bounce houses, art vendors, crafts, pumpkin painting and carnival games. This year’s three-day event will feature live music from six different performing acts and is expected to attract as many as 10,000 people.
Additional sponsors are sought at many different levels and are available for activities, events and areas of the festival. Vendor spaces are also still available in the festival’s Artisan Alley.
