Be a Sponsor/Exhibitor

Join us for the Dundalk Housing Fair & Neighborhood Tours on April 22nd, 2017


The Dundalk Renaissance Corporation (DRC) has been working to revitalize the Dundalk community for fifteen years, engaging residents and encouraging reinvestment in many ways, with multiple programs.  With our branding program ‘Live the Unexpected, we launched a new marketing campaign for Dundalk in June 2014, which included the new Dundalk logo, tagline and this website, targeted at attracting new residents to our 24 unique neighborhoods. The housing fairs are an important initiative to support that ongoing marketing campaign, and our April 22, 2017 event is housing fair #4!

Once again, we’re offering 20 DRC $5K Home Buyer Grants for 21222 and County 21224, and attendees will participate in a full day of meeting with exhibitors (up to 50), attending workshops (15 offered), receiving 1-on-1 credit counseling, and choosing a narrated bus tour with 5 open houses (3 tours available). Grant rules are here.

Register now as a Sponsor/Partner or Exhibitor

We invite you to partner with us as a Sponsor/Partner or Exhibitor and present your products and services directly to consumers looking to buy, rent or renovate. Please review the registration materials via the links below.  The deadline for sponsor/exhibitor registration is Friday, April 7, 2017, in order to allow enough time for event signage to include your name and logo. Of course, the earlier you commit to the housing fair, the more marketing coverage you will receive on our website, Facebook, print fliers and other media platforms. Call Diane Lesman at 410-282-0261 or email with any questions you may have. Sponsorship and exhibit space is sold on a first-come, first-served basis.

New benefit for sponsors, a win-win for you and DRC!

If you, as an individual or business, pay MD State taxes, you’ll be able to take advantage of the Community Investment Tax Credit Program for 2017, and a large portion of your sponsorship donation will be a State tax credit as well as a Federal and State deduction to a 501 (c) (3) non-profit. The attached citc-explanation-for-sponsors-2017 and citc_certification_of_contribution_form (easy to complete) explain the program, and Diane will answer any questions you may have. Please note that the exhibitor level ($175) does not meet the CITC minimum donation, but all of the sponsorship levels do.

Marketing the Fair

We promote this event throughout the greater Baltimore area with print and online advertising, radio promotions, press releases, social media engagement and multimedia press outreach. 10,000 fliers are produced in English and Spanish, and all of the Baltimore housing counseling agencies are part of that distribution, as well as a long list of lenders and real estate offices. We also reach out to the Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors to disperse our housing fair information online to their wide audience.  Our own Facebook page reaches almost 7,000, and our opt-in e-newsletters reach over 3,000.


Thank you for your interest and support of the Dundalk community, we look forward to seeing you at the 4th Dundalk Housing Fair and Neighborhood Tours! For more information, please contact Diane Lesman at (410) 282-0261 or email.
