The Dawtas of the Moon: Black Witch Convention was created to bring women of color together who are called to practice their ancestral healing and magical traditions.
We put out a call for Shamans, Healers, Priestesses, and anyone who identified themselves as a witch. On Saturday, October 29, 2016 at the Wisdom Book Store Reception Hall, 200 plus women from all over the world answered the call. This year the convention is coming back bigger and better. We are having a three-day event starting October 20-22 at The Inn At The Colonnade in Baltimore, MD. We’re offering masterclasses, additional workshops, a wide variety of vendors from many occult practices, and to celebrate it all, we are hosting a formal a Black Witch Masquerade Ball.
At this time, we are seeking sponsorship for the event. By purchasing sponsorship spaces and materials, you will have the unique opportunity to showcase your occult and spiritual products to a focused, international audience of Black witches. Your company will benefit through the positive energy generated by your support of our mission.
Your branding, product offerings, and occult community presence will generate sales for your company by tapping into a previously underutilized demographic. Many practitioners attending the conference are new to witchcraft, and are yet to find vendors who can supply their spell working needs. Your participation as a sponsor drives business to you through brand and name recognition. We are pleased to offer the following opportunities (you may choose more than one):
Swag bags for presenters with your logo and marketing information (minimum $200 retail value)
