Star Spangled Spectacular is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization and all of the events on the 4th are available free of charge. We recognize that this would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. Each January, the Steering Committee begins raising dollars from within the community to provide the same “spectacular” event as the previous year. Sponsors receive numerous benefits, including: signage at the event reaching over 40,000 people; promotional mentions from the stage and on live radio; advertisements in The Lima News and on iHeart radio and Your Hometown Lima Stations; and VIP parking & Hospitality Area passes.

Below are listed our sponsors for the 2019 event. Please remember their civic contributions when determining your future patronage. If your company is interested in sponsoring the 2020 Star Spangled Spectacular, please call Kurt Neeper at (419) 879-3502.
