First Ladybug Festival Sponsors Announced

Downtown Milford, Inc. and Gable Music Ventures are excited to announce the first round of sponsors for the inaugural Milford Ladybug Festival scheduled for Saturday, September 22, 2018. Gallery 37, A Destination for Artful Living, owned and operated by Marcia Reed and David Pickrell, has stepped in as a Gold Level sponsor, showing tremendous dedication and investment in the arts and culture of the City of Milford.

“Marcia and David were some of the first residents we met when we came to experience Milford for the first time. Their warmth and passion for the City went a long way to showing us that Milford would make a great home for the second Ladybug Festival,” Ladybug Festival co-founder, Jeremy Hebbel, said. “It’s so special to us, and we are so grateful, that Gallery 37 has stepped up at such a large level to demonstrate just how deep their investment in Milford runs.”

In addition to sponsoring the event Pickrell will be building a stage in the space adjacent to Gallery 37 to be utilized as a venue during the event.

“Marcia and I feel very strongly about the intention of the Ladybug Music Festival, and to give our support and help to create opportunities for those in the arts is very important to us,” Pickrell said. “This event will not only cultivate future opportunities for female musicians, but it will elevate the spirit of our community and help to provide a positive cultural direction for our city. Expanding the awareness of music and art is an invaluable part of a balanced growth plan for the individual or a city.”

“We are excited for the impact that the Ladybug Festival will have on our downtown area and the community as a whole,” said Mayor Bryan Shupe. “This festival captures the River Town, Arts Town, Home Town experience that makes Milford such a great place to start a business, raise a family or simply have fun.” 

In addition to Gallery 37, both Citizens Bank and i.g. Burton have committed resources to the event. The Milford Ladybug Festival will be completely free to attend thanks to the support of local businesses like these and the event wouldn’t be possible without the partnership and support of the business community in Milford.

Any businesses that are interested in being involved, to potentially host artists, or support the event as a sponsor, please call the DMI office at 302-839-1180 for more information.
