Organizers for the Edmonds Arts Festival remind us that it takes a village — or at least 500 members of a village — to put on the Edmonds Arts Festival each year.
The festival needs more than 500 dedicated, engaged, community-minded and fun volunteers to make the Edmonds Arts Festival happen. If you love the arts, you are invited to participate; opportunities include a wide variety of needed skills and time commitments. They include:
• Before the Festival, check in Juried Art, hang art in Student Art, help with “The pARTy” benefit, assist with carpentry, electrical and technical skills.
• During the Festival, help for two- to three-hour shifts with: Kids Create projects, Juried Art, Transportation/Signage, Student Art Gallery, booth sitting, Festival Store, or Information Booth.
• After the Festival, help take down various areas of the Festival.
• There are also planning committees throughout the year.
Volunteer sign-ups are available online or you can visit the Edmonds Saturday Market booth during the month of May and the first week in June. For additional information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
