Our mission is to create more vibrant and beautiful communities by sharing our gardens. And your organization can be part of that.

Sponsorship packages are accepted year-round and are tailored to suit any budget-size. Pricing ranges from as little as $500 up to $10,000. Gardens Buffalo Niagara is always looking at ways of creatively presenting your product or service to its gardeners, volunteers, and event participants.

Sponsors of Gardens Buffalo Niagara have the opportunity to introduce themselves to an enthusiastic audience of people who believe in gardening and love Western New York.

Only sponsors have the ability to distribute Garden Walk Buffalo maps ahead of the Walk, if they’re able. It is a reliable traffic-builder for retail locations. Maps will be available to distribute to a sponsoring organization’s employees if desired.

When your company/organization purchases a Gardens Buffalo Niagara/Garden Walk Buffalo Sponsorship package, you are committing to:

  • Keeping Garden Walk Buffalo, America’s largest garden tour, free and open to the public and promoting the many garden tours in the region
  • Funding beautification projects throughout the region
  • Promoting tourism
  • Encouraging community-building
  • Promoting healthy living
  • Supporting horticultural education
  • Showing civic pride in Buffalo Niagara
  • Reaching tens of thousands of people in a most desirable consumer group – upper income, college-educated, household purchase-influencers and decision-makers - through GBN’s summer-long series of events


There are many additional, creative ways to promote your company or organization during GBN events. Past sponsors have offered branded premiums to visitors – pedometers, sunscreen packets, seeds, planting rulers, product catalogs, discounts, and coupons. For many years, a sponsor offered free healthy snacks of sorbet in select neighborhoods at 2 p.m. each day of Garden Walk Buffalo, to the delight of visitors. Another sponsor employed chalk artists to create branded art along our shuttle routes. One sponsor, a lighting specialist, gave all the gardeners of Garden Walk Buffalo green light bulbs for their porch lights!


Your brand has the potential to educate, entertain, and engage a captive audience on what it is doing to make a difference in the world today. We’d like to help you in that goal!
