Kernel VIP Seating
The Marion Popcorn Festival Main Stage Entertainment is FREE, but there are a limited number of reserved seats that are the “best seats in the house.”
These are the seats in the roped-off area in front of the main stage. This area is reserved for Marion Popcorn Festival sponsors – both large and small – who help provide the funding to bring in national entertainment each year. (As many of you know, the Festival’s “FREE” entertainment is actually quite expensive.) What you may not know is that you can purchase a Kernel Sponsorship with a very limited budget. Or, if you have received Kernel Seats as part of another sponsorship package and would like more for a particular night, those can be obtained separately.
Kernel Seats may be used by the business owners themselves, but they can also be used to entertain clients or given to employees as a token of appreciation.
