Advertise With Funtober

If you want to drive more customers and/or visitors to your event or business, we can help through various advertising packages. Several million people will likely visit Funtober between August 1st and November 30th. Last year, we had approximately 2 million visitors and 4 million pageviews. In our top metropolitan areas, we reach more than 100,000 people over three months. We also have tens of thousands of people on our email list and social media.

Basic Event/Location Listings

We give our basic listing for events and business locations FREE between December 1st and March 31st. Since we have a fall website, it is relatively easy for us to add new events and business during this time period. Your listing will be live on our website before May 1st.

Between April 1st and November 30th, there is a one-time fee for listing. This fee is $49 before July 31st and $99 between August 1st and November 30th. We will add your listing within one week of payment before July 31st and within 24 hours of payment between August 1st and November 30th.

Summary:

Before April 1st: Free
April 1 to July 31: $49
August 1 to November 30: $99

Special Terms:

We reserve the right to reject any free or paid basic listing for any reason or no reason at all. We put a lot of effort into this website and we will not jeopardize it for the sake of an extra $100. We will refund your payment if we reject your listing in the first year. We have rejected 0 paid listings to date.

Your one-time fee covers the event or business so long as (1) our website remains online; (2) you do not change your primary domain for the event/business; and (3) the name and nature of the event does not fundamentally change. In other words, it is easy for us to update your listing every year for free if you do not change the website domain or the nature of the event. If we cannot find updated information online or from you, we will delete your listing.

If your event or location already has a listing on Funtober, you do not need to pay the fee. Please email us the information to update your listing.

The entire village is haunted! There are four haunted attractions throughout the small town including Mr. Wiggle’s Wood Shop, Dr. Doom’s Science Room both inside the old school building, the Prom Night Massacre at the community hall, and The Detention Fields an outdoor haunt near the school. A “haunted bus” will transport you through town, past the ghouls and zombies that walk the streets. Visit http://www.SchoolDistrict13.com for more information about rates and dates.

    We want people to rent our carousel band organ for Halloween festivals in Minnesota! It’s a carousel organ that plays buy itself it plays paper rolls like a player piano does but NOT a player piano. It’s fun for Halloween.

    Standard Rates

    First 5 hours $485.00

    Each Additional Hour $80.00

    Full Day $750.00

    Multiple Days $725.00/day

    We are occasionally asked why are prices “seem a little high”. We ask you to consider the following:

    If you hire a live band for your event you can expect to pay each musician at least $200 for an average 4 hour gig. For example a simple jazz trio would likely amount to $600. A larger contemporary band requiring sound equipment could cost well over $1,500 for a single occasion! And if a acoustic piano is required you can count on a minimum of $500 for the rental. For events lasting longer you can expect to pay considerable over time. Live bands also take thirty minute breaks and often end up eating your food and consuming drinks.

    Our band organ entertainment is ALL INCLUSIVE. We deliver, set it up, it requires no maintenance, it never stops for breaks, it doesn’t complain, and it won’t eat your food. All things considered THAT is a bargain!
