COMMUNITY SPONSORS AND PARTNERS
It takes a team of Community Sponsors and Partners to make the Snake Saturday Parade and Festival the success it has become. Over the last 35 years, over 1.5 million dollars has been provided to numerous Northland Charities thanks to the great community which supports the various events of Snake Saturday. Northland Festivals, the organization which coordinates and produces Snake Saturday, has been blessed with monetary sponsors, table sponsors, in-kind sponsors, and working sponsors to make Snake Saturday the success it has become. From the Grand Marshal Celebration, to the Lad and Lassie Contest, to the Charity Cook-Off, to the Festival and Parade we thank every Community Sponsor and Partner who has supported this fun and exciting event along the way. We look forward to our returning Community Sponsors and Partners and to establishing new Community Sponsors and Partners as we all support the various charities which support our community.

The Snake Saturday Parade and Festival wouldn’t be the success it is today without a team of community partners. Here’s just a sampling of the partners who help bring the event to life every year.
The City of North Kansas City and the NKC Police support the parade by attending all the committee meetings and bringing in other law enforcement to assist with the parade and festival area. The NKC Fire Department inspects our food concessions for safety, and they take personal pride in cleaning and repairing the Snake Saturday Grand Marshal Float. Many thanks to the Mayor, City Council, and the office staff who also support us. Finally, the NKC Public Works Department, whose behind-the-scenes work is simply amazing and very much appreciated.
Stor-Safe, another 30-year-old partner, stores the Grand Marshal float for us. We always rest easy knowing it’s safe and ready for the next year.
North Kansas City Hospital is one of the longest community partners and sponsor. They make the parade and the Charity Cookoff possible! All our sponsors are also great community partners, from Mid America Contractors, to Country Club Bank, Donut King, Worlds of Fun, NKC Beverage, NT Realty, Steamatic KC, NKC Business Council, and Paul and Jack’s.
Other community partners include organizations like the Central Auto Racing Boosters, who have been bringing a car show to the Festival area since 1990. The NKC YMCA provides the room for the after parade awards ceremony and the bleachers for our reserved grandstand area. Paul Craig has been bringing us the Theatre Tech Show for the last 23 years. Dick Cull of HOT Fire and Safety has been providing badges for the event for several years.
Also, thank you to all the businesses that support the Grand Marshal Celebration like Chappell’s, Pat’s Pub, Smokin’ Guns, Jimmy Johns, Finnegan’s Hall, Cinderblock Brewery, Paul and Jack’s, Aunt Mary’s Cookies, Above and Beyond Caterings, Helen’s, Kelso’s Pizza, and Helzberg Diamonds.
As you can see, we have enjoyed the support of numerous organizations for several years. Their support makes this event successful and is very much appreciated. If we missed you, please let us know, because we truly do value everyone’s assistance.
We want to use this page to honor some of our community partners more in depth in the future so please come back and check this page often.
We always have more room for additional sponsors to come on board, please see our SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES »
