S-Mart Announces End of BruceFest Sponsorship
Beloved discount department store chain S-Mart has announced an end to its sponsorship of Brucefest. Though the festival has flourished with S-Mart's support, the parting was mutually decided in the wake of Brucefest 2022. "It no longer makes sense for us," said Randall Smart, acting CEO of S-Mart. "Our goals for the coming year include further expansion and implementation of many exciting programs, and we have been forced to deprioritize sponsorship of fan events."
We here at S-Mart wish Brucefest, its fans, and Bruce Campbell himself all the best.
You are all part of the S-Mart family and we will never forget that.
BruceFest 2022 is BACK baby!
This year we are proud to sponsor the triumphant return of BruceFest to the epic Stanley Hotel, and this time, we convinced Ted Raimi to join in the fun too! Get your tickets today for this intimate weekend of Bruce-Goodness!

like to first and foremost emphasize that this was our decision and ours alone,

Temple Detroit, or any of the production or promotional entities involved in the
festival. We are immensely impressed by the hard work everyone did and regret
that it was necessary to withdraw our support and thereby necessitate the

Bruce Campbell who may attend Brucefest. Though it was necessary to allocate
the funds dedicated to our Brucefest sponsorship elsewhere, we do not
anticipate a repeat of these circumstances and look forward to the day when we
can once more collaborate with Mr. Campbell and the talented artists behind
