Sponsorships at KLZR
Why is this a good idea?
Our radio station is unique and local, and that same uniqueness is reflected in those individuals and businesses that find our programs and events to be a terrific way to celebrate and enjoy our community.
What can I sponsor?
Any KLZR event is available for sponsorship. Businesses can sponsor individual events or all of our 2018 events. This year’s annual events include:
May and December, Spring and Winter Open Houses: Twice a year KLZR opens the station to the public in conjunction with holiday celebrations throughout town. Live music and DJs play music all day while station visitors have a chance to see the broadcasting studio. We typically see 100-125 visitors come through the station during our open houses.
June 9, Rock ‘N’ Soul Jam ‘18: KLZR’s Rock ‘N’ Soul Jam returns to the Wet Mountain Valley for a second year, hosted at the Feed Store Amphitheater. Featuring 3 regional bands, it’s an excursion into the past with Classic Rock, Motown and Soul music from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Set with a backdrop of the beautiful Sangre de Cristo Mountains, over 200 attended last year’s inaugural event and 250 tickets are expected to be sold for this year’s event.
June 24, Taste of the Valley: Taste of the Valley is KLZR’s annual wine and dinner, premier fundraising event. Sixty guests enjoy a multiple course dinner paired with wine, music, a live auction and views to match. Sponsorship of the cost of food and wine for the dinner is available. This event sells out every year and attracts lovers of food, wine and community radio!
September 7 & 8, High Peaks Premiere and High Peaks Music Festival: For nearly ten years the High Peaks Music Festival, and its opening Premiere night, have featured the best in musical talent in our region. This event hosted by local musicians, including Smythe and Taylor, sees over 300 guests for an afternoon of music, picnicking and fun.
