39th Annual Helen Keller Festival
Post Office Box 28
Tuscumbia, AL 35674

 

The Helen Keller Festival is just around the corner and the festival board is already hard at work planning the events to celebrate our 39th anniversary!!   This year’s festival will be held June 19th – 25th, 2017 in beautiful downtown Tuscumbia.   

            The festival draws thousands of visitors to the Shoals area each year and generates economic impact across the Quad Cities.  Everyone knows about the great entertainment that your sponsorship helps provide for our community, but the festival is so much more.  The festival is 7 full days filled with historical tours, entertainment, arts and crafts, Keller Kids, Imagination Station, athletic events, car shows and much, much more.  Keller Kids is a free all day program for 4th, 5th and 6th graders teaching them about living with and overcoming disabilities.  Imagination Station is a free event over 2 days featuring activities such as children’s arts and crafts booths, face painting, balloons and most importantly, education about vision and hearing disabilities.

The Helen Keller Festival has received numerous state and national event awards over the last 10 years.  We are very proud of the success and longevity of the Helen Keller Festival and are firmly dedicated to making sure this festival is kept alive and successful for generations to come!  We consider it an honor to volunteer our time and resources to make this year’s festival a success. 

The Festival would not be what it is today, if not for the many local and national sponsors who have enthusiastically supported the festival.  Without you, our sponsors, there is no festival!  Would you take a minute to look over our enclosed sponsorship information and consider supporting the Helen Keller Festival?  We also have opportunities to sponsor a specific event (i.e. Imagination Station, the arts and crafts show, movie nights, etc.…).  If you would like to discuss sponsorship of a specific event or have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime at 256-810-1899

On behalf of the Helen Keller Festival Board, thank you in advance for your help and support in 2017.   Please remember that the Festival is a 501(c) 3 and any donations are tax deductible.
