Performance Hosting at the Blyth Festival

Being a Performance Host offers businesses and community partners an opportunity to give back and reinvest in the local region, while at the same time reaching a targeted demographic to strengthen your own business network.

When you become a Performance Host your contribution directly supports new play development and play production, as well as community outreach initiatives and youth programming that contribute to the quality of life in Huron County and the surrounding area.

Our audience

Blyth Festival patrons from Southwestern Ontario and the Greater Toronto Area represent the majority of our audience, with a strong presence in Midwestern Ontario.

54% of Blyth Festival patrons have annual household incomes over $60,000 and over 25% have incomes over $100,000.

The top four sectors employing Blyth Festival patrons include sales and services, trades and transportation, business finance and administration, and primary industries, such as farming.

Blyth Festival patrons are not frivolous consumers—they purchase what they value.

Blyth Festival patrons are engaged in their communities though volunteerism and support for local initiatives.
