#CDAF2021 Volunteers

About the Cotton District Arts Festival: 

Presented by the Starkville Area Arts Council, CDAF blends incredible art, music, and food into a showcase community event. The festival hosts nearly 150 artisans, a Juried Arts Competition, Writers' Village, Taste of Starkville, Pet Parade, Student Art Competition, and much more!

We appreciate your interest in volunteering with us!  If you have any questions, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator: 

Juliette Reid at [email protected].

All hours completed can be signed off as Community Service hours. If you need verification of hours worked at the festival, please bring the appropriate forms or paperwork. We do not provide verification forms. Hours will be signed off at the end of a shift, not the beginning. You must sign-in at the start of your shift to receive credit and, if you are working multiple shifts, hours can be signed off at the end of your last shift.

Thank you!
