Dear Festival Supporter,

Save the date! Come and watch it rain oatmeal at this year’s 37th annual Oatmeal Festival, hosted by the Oatmeal Festival Association. This year’s Festival will be held on Saturday, August 30, 2014 in Downtown Bertram, Texas. The Oatmeal Festival began in 1977 as a good-natured attempt to put the community of Oatmeal back on the map after state map-makers ignored the tiny neighboring community. The Festival has evolved into one of the wackiest, most imaginative small-town festivals anywhere. This one day Festival will feature a Grand Parade, 3.3K Fun Run, zany games, food, arts and crafts, kid events, musical performances, and a street dance in Downtown Bertram featuring People’s Choice Band! Event organizers have gathered a diverse group of artists and performers to bring their talents to this year’s Festival to encourage cultural arts and bring our community together for a day of fun.

Our local business and community organizations are important contributors to promoting arts and culture in the community. For this reason, please consider sharing your support for the Oatmeal Festival. By providing your financial support you will directly help fund the Annual Oatmeal Festival Scholarship Fund for our graduating seniors, promote the talents of area artists and musicians, and provide the venue for creative inspiration for future generations.

Thank you for your consideration and support of this worthy event. We hope you will take this opportunity to become an Oatmeal Festival supporter. Please contact me with any questions about the Festival or sponsorship at (512) 971-6396.
