How to sponsor

The Monte Vista Crane Festival is a unique event that brings thousands of people to Monte Vista and the surrounding communities in the San Luis Valley to see the migration of the Sandhill Cranes. This event is an economic benefit to our community and we are anxious to engage businesses in Monte Vista, Alamosa, and surrounding communities.  But preservation of this event depends on the support of people and businesses in the community and beyond. For your donation, you will receive recognition and advertising for your business.
