Lincoln Arts Council
Join us as a Lincoln Arts Festival Volunteer!
The 19th Lincoln Arts Festival is a fun, family-friendly event at the end of September and it is a great way to give back to our community. Volunteered in the past? We would love to have you back. If you haven’t joined, jump in! As a volunteer you will experience immense satisfaction. Invite friends to sign up during your shift. Meet new people who share your interest in art. There are lots of fun things to do from set-up to tear-down, booth sitting, artist hospitality, kids arts activities and more! Help us make this a memorable event!
Here are the volunteer jobs we need to fill:
Set up Crew: Are you a behind the scenes kind of volunteer? Enjoy a good workout and great company? Must be able-bodied. Many hands make light work. We need you!
Artist Check in: Friendly, outgoing and enjoy greeting guests? This job's for you. Duties include greeting artists as they arrive, checking them into the festival, and distributing artist handbooks. All day on Friday, early on Saturday morning. Volunteers will become familiar with the festival layout, parking rules and traffic flow.
Patron Breakfast crew: Help set up the breakfast of champions ... otherwise known as our Lincoln Arts Festival Patrons. This fun volunteer job involves lots of smiles, food and art.
Gate Attendants: We need friendly volunteers to help welcome art lovers to the festival and take admission donations.
Booth Sitters: Get the inside skinny on the artist's life. Give the artists a needed break. Duties include staffing artists' booths to allow short breaks as needed, staffing the artist hospitality tent to provide refreshments to artists.
Teardown: We appreciate our tear-down crew more than words can say. At the end of the Festival Sunday evening, we pack everything up for delivery back to storage. Must be able-bodied. Many hands make light work. Say yes!
