Sponsored Families

Who Qualifies?

The Sponsored Families Program seeks to increase diversity and inclusiveness at the Annual Craft Lake City Holiday Market by providing families from underrepresented and/or socially or economically excluded communities whose income falls within or below the median income bracket for Weber county to attend the event at no cost. he sponsorship includes free admission and vouchers for food and merchandise. We work closely with local community partners to identify these families and help coordinate their Holiday Market experience confidentially and with integrity.

Craft Lake City works closely with local partner organizations to help identify families who may benefit from this program and help to coordinate their Holiday Market experience confidentially and with integrity. These organizations play a crucial role as liaisons between Craft Lake City and the families, helping facilitate logistics and communication.

For the purposes of this program, a “family” represents a household, and may include a single individual or multiple people sharing one roof and one household budget.

What Benefits do Sponsored Families Receive?

Each individual from a Sponsored Family receive the following:

• One Annual Craft Lake City Holiday Market general admission ticket (to be used on the Market day of their choice)
• Meal voucher good for use at any Craft Lake City Holiday Market food vendor.

How do Sponsored Families Participate?

Craft Lake City works with community nonprofit partners to identify families who may be interested in and benefit from the Sponsored Families program. Once families are identified:

  • Craft Lake City, with the partner organization, invites the families to attend the Annual Craft Lake City Holiday Market and provides them with logistics regarding check in at the event.
  • Craft Lake City will send entry tickets and vouchers to the partner organizations before the event for dissemination to their families.
  • If requested, a Craft Lake City liaison will meet each family at the entrance when they arrive.
  • The Craft Lake City liaison will also provide a mini tour of the Holiday Market to help orient the family.
  • Families are then free to enjoy the Holiday Market at their own pace for the day.
