Sponsor

Our festival couldn’t happen without the generosity of the people behind organizations who are willing to give their time and financial commitment to promote growth in the Lansing community. You are invited to help support the upcoming How-To Halloween, and whether you choose a Ghost, Goblin, Vampire, Werewolf or Monster Level Sponsorship (with your $250-$5,000 tax deductible donation), we can provide the right amount of benefits and exposure that suits your company. Thanks for your consideration, and please download our brochure for more details.

Vendor

Are you a crazy inventor, wacky artist, horror writer or Halloween maker? Join us to sell your creepy cool products or promote your spooky stuff with a vendor space at How-To Halloween. The price for a 10’ x 10’ fully loaded booth (which includes an 8’ table with linens, chairs, pipe and drape backdrop and access to power) is only $150. However, a discount of $50 will be extended to vendors who exhibit a “how-to” element (some sort of make-n-take or instructional demo), so your cost can be as low as $100.
