Mount Vernon Music and Arts Festival - August 11 - 14, 2022

Wow! We are returning to a sense of normalcy and the festival is back! We are getting into the swing of things and your help for this festival is needed in many ways.  We need BACK STAGE SUPPORT – Helping with the fundamental needs of the festival such as being a host or hostess for various activities to setting up and/or tearing down the festival Scroll through the opportunities to help. Select the activities that appeal to you and become a FESTIVAL FORCE MEMBER. You will be glad you did.

Please review the available activites below and scroll on down to sign up. Thank you!


This is the foundational support of the festival. Hosts are simply facilitators of an activity. The presence of each host is a vital part of the festival. It is best that a host is 18 years of age, though a younger person can be a host, it would be appreciated if they had adult support.

BACK STAGE – SET UP (25 Participants Needed)

            We need your help! Tents need to be put up. Barrels need to be filled with water. Straps need to be tightened. Displays need to be established and your help is SO needed. Consider how you can participate in the preparation of this fun festival. Hope to see you there.

BACK STAGE – CLEAN UP (25 Participants Needed)

            This is a big one and we need help. Many hands can reduce the amount of time it takes to put this festival to bed. Large tents need to be dismantled; festival materials need to be put away. No task is hard but the more hands available the easier and faster the tasks are tackled and completed. Please consider this activity as this really needs many hands and many bodies.


Rovers are runners through out the festival in two hour time slots. A rover will do any number of activities including the following: They will go wherever is needed, fill in for breaks,  greet acts that are not on a stage, help with misc. needs, etc.


            This will be a highly active area. Several “stations” will be set up. Each station will have some element of art and science related to the activity. Host will help to oversee, teach, demonstrate, and encourage guests to experiment with each station. It will be the responsibility of the host to keep activities and people moving. No station will be difficult. However, each activity will need an attendant to help manage the experience for all. 


This year we will have an art show. This show will incorporate the work and talent of our community artists. Located in the ballroom of The Grand Hotel, guests and visitors will be encouraged to stop in and peruse the various pieces of art. Hosts will simply be greeter and protectors of the artwork. 

BACK STAGE – HOSPITALITY HOSTS (2 Participants Needed)

These ambassadors of the festival will be part of the “face” of the festival. At the festival tent various handouts about the Mount Vernon, Knox County and specifically the festival will be available. This is a great opportunity to visit with many visitors to our area.

BACK STAGE – ARTS AND CRAFTS (2 Participants Needed)

            The hosts for this area will be responsible for covering booths should an artist need a break for food, water, or restroom needs. Hosts will become additional eyes for the artist should their booth get busy with customers. Our hosts simply help to oversee the area, answer questions when needed, and help manage needs of the artist should they arise.


            This activity needs a lot of people to help. It is an easily manageable event if we have a festival force to lend a hand. Please consider your availability and sign up to help. You do not need to know about cars or motorcycles. Hosts are needed to help park cars, run around with 50/50 tickets, help pass out participation awards and other small but important tasks. This would be a great family activity. Please consider how you can help and sign up.
