Visit Yolo’s Sponsorship Program for Events and Marketing Projects

Visit Yolo’s Sponsorship Program

Visit Yolo is committed to increasing hotel nights in Davis, Winters, Woodland and unincorporated Yolo County. To this end, we offer sponsorships to events, conferences and other projects that occur in these communities. A completed application along with all required documentation should be completed 90 days in advance of the event/project. Applications within the 90-day window will be accepted on a case-by-case basis.  All funds must be approved by the Visit Yolo board of directors per Visit Yolo’s bylaws.
