Sponsors and Partners

We're wild about our sponsors!

Over the years we've built a fantastic tribe of sponsors and partners.

CAF offers so many great opportunities for your company to get involved and to be a part of the Festival.

As well as being acknowledged as a partner or sponsor of the Festival, your company can get involved in so many creative ways, hosting clients or staff to shows, and experiencing something out of the ordinary.

Interested in joining us on the wild side?
