Thrival can only go as far as the community can take it. As a nonprofit, Ascender requires the backing of invested stakeholders who believe in the power of new ideas and value of entrepreneurs to community and economic development. For the last two years, our valued sponsors have made this festival possible by their generous financial and operational support. Please reach out to info@thrivalfestival.com for more information.


Thrival presents a fantastic opportunity to represent your brand and sell your products to an audience of thousands. We give special consideration to startup organizations, but we welcome all inquiries from vendors who are interested in providing first-class amenities to festival-goers. Application form will be available in April 2019.


We want to work with individuals and organizations that can bring unique artistic and experiential elements to the Thrival platform. If you think your art, program, activity, or talent can further our festival’s growth, we are planning 2019 and would like to hear from you. Email us at info@thrivalfestival.com.

Thrival isn’t a reality without the help of dozens of hard-working individuals who believe in its mission and its value. Our Street Team has been integral to the success of the Festival year after year. You are the fuel that will make this Festival a can’t-miss event in national conversations. Help Thrival grow!  Check back for the application in Spring 2019.
