Partnerships & Advertising

Partnerships and advertising with Jacob’s Pillow will drive positive results for your business, while reminding your current and future customers that you care about the community and the arts.

Choosing to partner with the Pillow will strengthen your connection to the Pillow’s affluent, culturally-minded, and educated audiences and increase your visibility in the Berkshire community.

Jacob’s Pillow has been called “the dance center of the nation” (The New York Times), a “hub and mecca of dancing” (TIME), and “one of America’s most precious cultural assets” (legendary dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov). As a driving force for regional tourism, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival hosts more than 100,000 visitor experiences through 350 ticketed and free performances, talks, exhibits, and events. These visitors fill restaurants and lodging establishments, frequent area attractions, shop locally, and are supporters of the arts, especially dance.

Jacob’s Pillow, a National Historic Landmark and recipient of the National Medal of the Arts, is home to America’s longest-running international dance festival. In 2017, the Pillow will celebrate its 85th Anniversary Season and bring new audiences from across the globe to the Berkshires.

Opportunities for partnerships and advertising include advertising in the Pillow’s Festival Program Book, with ad sizes and costs suitable for any budget; email advertising in Festival E-news; on-site visibility throughout campus; and increased exposure on the Pillow’s website. Business Partnership and Advertising Packages bring together the variety of opportunities to offer your message to Jacob’s Pillow audiences before they arrive as well as when they are on our grounds and in the theatres. Multiple touchpoints with our audiences will increase visibility and valuable results for your business.
