Sponsorship Levels

Taste of the Lower East Side is by far the most delicious opportunity to show your networks and your community that you, too, are invested in building up a community filled with potential, promise and options. Our restaurants say it is their favorite tasting event – everything from the event planning to the whirlwind of the excited crowd to the incredible community connection created by the partnerships, generosity and culture of this event. You want to be here – and perhaps more importantly, you want your brand to be here, too.

Your sponsorship, as well as any other contributions, is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. Your contribution, minus $70 per person attending, is deductible.

Let us know how we can build a sponsorship package that is right for you!
