Social Media Contests
Throughout fest weekend
Be sure to keep an eye out on our Facebook page for this year's social media contests! Each day we will be posting to our page. Here are some examples:
Facebook Photo Contest
Each year we host a Butterfest Facebook Photo contest! Click here to learn more about this year's contest.
Check our Facebook page often. Occasionally we will post that the first person to come to headquarters and say a password will receive a prize. Show up to fest headquarters and say the password first, and you win!
We'll post to our page requesting you share a picture at a specific fest event, or even with a member of the royalty! Be the first one to bring a picture to headquarters and win!
When we post requesting for photos of a certain event, comment with your photo. We will choose a winner to receive a prize! NOTE: The winner could be any comment, not necessarily the first, or most liked comment.
Following Fest Weekend
Sparta Festival Grounds are located at Memorial Park on the corner of Rusk Avenue and Montgomery Street.
Sparta Butterfest reserves the right to change/alter promotions or contests as needed.
Following Fest weekend, we will create an album of all of the publicly posted #Butterfest22 photos we receive, and a grand prize winner will receive a gift card.
For 2021, we have decided to open this contest to ALL #Butterfest21 photos and photo comments on our daily challenges! Post your photos PUBLICLY on Facebook with #Butterfest21 to enter! Following fest weekend, watch for us to post an album with the photos to our Facebook page! Go to OUR album, and like your favorite photos! The photo that has the most likes by 12pm on Wednesday, June 16th will be our winner!
Photos must be posted publicly on Facebook by Sunday June 13th at 10pm to be a part of the initial album for this contest. After we have posted the album, if you don't see your picture, comment with it and we will add it to the album. ONLY photos in our #Butterfest21 Contest Photo Album will qualify for this contest. "Likes" on your personal page/posts will not count. All, including the committee and royalty, are welcome to participate as the contest is based on public "likes" of the photo.
UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming response to this contest, on Wednesday the at 12pm the photos will be NARROWED down to a group of finalists. A new album will be created, and the one that ends up with the most votes at the end will be our winner! :) The winner will be determined on Friday, June 18th at 12pm.
Butterfest reserves the right to exclude any photo as deemed necessary. Butterfest reserves the right to change or alter the contest at any time. We reserve the right to use any publicly posted #Butterfest21 photo for future advertising as we see fit.
For 2020, we decided to open this contest to ALL #Butterfest20 photos and photo comments on our daily challenges! Photos posted PUBLICLY on Facebook with #Butterfest20 were entered! Following fest weekend, they were posted to an album with the photos to our Facebook page! Facebook visitors were invited to go to OUR album, and like their favorite photos! The photo that had the most likes by 2pm on Wednesday, June 17th was our winner!
Photos needed to be posted publicly on Facebook by Sunday June 14th at 10pm to be a part of the initial album for this contest.

In 2019, all #Butterfest19 photos posted to Facebook were included in the contest.
For 2018, this contest was related to our Fast Corp. Park. Festers were asked to take a photo in our Fast Corp Park (on the grounds) and post it to Facebook with #Butterfest18. Following fest, all of the #Butterfest18 photos in Fast Corp Park were added to an album on our Facebook page. A deadline was set, and the winner was Windsor, a cute corgi inside the Fast Corp fish's mouth!
NOTE: Bringing dogs or pets on Fest Grounds is strongly discouraged. You will be responsible for any injury or damages related to your pet on the fest grounds.
Be sure to keep an eye out on our Facebook page for this year's social media contests! There will be "password" challenges in which we will post a word and the first person to get to headquarters and say that word wins a prize! We will also have photo challenges, in which the first person to come to headquarters with a photo matching the request on our Facebook page will win a prize (ex. We may post to bring a picture of the carnival, and the first to come with that picture wins a t-shirt!)
