The Blue Springs Golden Regiment Invitational Marching Festival is now in its 44th Season!
This event is expected to attract:
16 high school bands from all over the Midwest including Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
Over 2,500 students and staff members from participating bands.
Over 2,000 admission purchasing event spectators.
Over 150 local Blue Springs High School parent and family volunteers.
With operating hours from 8:00 am through 10:30 pm, many of these attendees will be utilizing the food trucks for meals and snacks throughout the day.
Food Trucks will be scheduled based on the date we receive your signed “Sponsorship Agreement” on a first-come, first serve basis. The number of trucks will be limited to specific menu options to ensure successful sales for all of the vendors. Here is the schedule we will be utilizing:
8:00 am - 12:00 pm
One Full Breakfast Menu Vendor
One Pastry Breakfast Menu Vendor
11:00 am - 10:30 pm
Four Full Lunch/Dinner Menu Vendors *
* The Golden Regiment will also be operating a concession stand inside the stadium concourse.
All Day Two Cold Dessert Vendors
Two Hot Dessert Vendors
One Coffee & Beverage Vendor
For 2022, we’re creating a dedicated “Food Truck Pavilion.”
This new area will be positioned in front of the Blue Springs High School Performing Arts Center (pending details of final construction plans for campus) ensuring that all attendees pass through the pavilion on their way into the stadium entrance. Additionally, the position will ensure that spectators that leave the stadium to visit the food trucks will not have to fight the traffic of bands entering the stadium. We believe this improved flow will ensure even better results for our vendors.
We will also provide tables and chairs in this area to ensure food truck customers stay longer and utilize more of the options.
Increased signage will be added throughout the school complex to help draw additional attention inside and outside of the food trucks. And, a spectator packet is being sent to all of the attending bands that will include information on what trucks will be available.
In addition to this advertising, those trucks that agree to the “Gold” sponsorship will have additional opportunities for their truck to be showcased at the event. See the sponsorship agreement for more details.
A donation of $350 will be made to the Friends of the Golden Regiment in exchange for the Purple level sponsorship. As part of this sponsorship, your business will be allowed to participate as a part of the Food Truck Pavilion.
A donation of $550 will be made to the Friends of the Golden Regiment in exchange for the Gold level sponsorship. As part of this sponsorship, your business will be allowed to participate as a part of the Food Truck Pavilion. In addition, your business logo will be included on signage inside and outside of the stadium complex. Your logo will be included in the spectator packet being distributed to all attending bands. Signage with your complete menu offering will be displayed at the entrance to the Food Truck Pavilion and alongside the stadium admissions entrance. A "PA announcement" will be made in between each band advertising your food truck. "Promotional coupons" can be provided with all admission purchases. A 1/4 page advertisement will be included in the program book for the festival (valued at $125 alone). Your logo will be included on the Golden Regiment Invitational website as a sponsor.
