Yonkers Downtown BID

Jazz, Blues & More Concert Series & Riverfest 2018 Sponsorships


Friday Night Jazz, Blues, & More on the Waterfront

Each summer, the Yonkers Downtown BID presents the Jazz, Blues & More Concert Series each Friday evening, in June, July and August, at the Yonkers Downtown Waterfront Amphitheater. Thousands of people attend the Yonkers Downtown BID’s Jazz, Blues & More Concert Series. This is one of the most anticipated local events of the summer and always gathers a great crowd, attracting between 350-500 people each week.  Last year was an absolute hit with Grammy nominee Gil Parris, “The Voice” runner-up Nickolas David, JT Project (currently #1 on Billboard’s top Jazz songs), and ending with the biggest concert of the season with Jamaican sensation Etana. This year’s lineup will be off-the-charts. The Yonkers Downtown BID is a small non-profit organization, and we look for partners and sponsors to help support these events.  Sponsorship allows organizations to not only to support the arts, but it is a cost effective way to promote your business and products.  Besides numerous recognition through online advertising, signage and an announcement on stage at the event, you can also set up a table at the event to promote your business right to the audience.


We have three different sponsorship opportunities for the series. There is a Series Sponsorship, a Co- Sponsor, and a Weekly Sponsorship available. By becoming a Sponsor, you will receive the following:

  • For series sponsors, Large Business logo displayed on stage and on all materials. This includes color flyers, banners, posters, press releases, paid newspaper ads, etc.
  • For Co-Sponsors, your logo will appear on all printed material.
  • For weekly sponsors, your name will appear on online promo materials on your selected week’s performance.
  • Verbal recognition and the beginning and end of the performance.  This includes the opportunity for you to talk directly to the crowd during any intermission.
  • You can set up a table promoting your business at the performance.  Tables can be placed as close to the action as reasonable possible. Only sponsors are allowed this opportunity.
