About OB Marketing

Let’s face it. Festivals are fun! We’ve fallen in love with festivals all over the country. They make people happy and drive local economies. They draw people to the fantastic, the awe-inspiring, the “wow” moments and create a sense of belonging for people from all walks of life because they’ve come together to celebrate whatever it is your festival celebrates.


Festivals take ordinary, mundane things like cherries, salmon, and asparagus and transform them into an indulgence of the senses where people from all over descend upon a small town and share joy with each other. Festivals make visitors happy. Festivals make towns proud of something.


We love festivals, and we want to use our marketing expertise to make festivals, and their communities, thrive. We have over 15 years of marketing experience. Let us use it to share the joy of your festival with as many people as possible.

About the Founder

Ben DeVries founded Oranje Boven Marketing in 2020. After 15 years working in sales and marketing, he decided he could help more people through his own organization. He has experience with full-stack marketing in B2B, B2C, tourism, and festival marketing. He’s an Enneagram 8 and a Kolbe 6 2 9 3. In spare moments you’ll find him reading,  enjoying a quiet respite in the woods, or attempting to play pickleball (yes, really).
