Make a BIG impact and join Art in the Park in an exclusive way by volunteering! Volunteers receive an invitation to the Art After Dark Reception (complimentary music, food & beverages).

Festival Volunteer Opportunities:

Welcomers– greet guests and hand out programs and People’s Choice Ballots

Tent Runners– check on artists, bring water to and sit in booth if the artist needs a break (not required to make sales), let visitors know the artist will be right back!

Kid’sArt– help with youth activities and handing out supplies

Set up and clean up– perhaps one of the most daunting tasks but also the most important!

Many more opportunities– give us ideas!
