Volunteer at the Festival

Be a part of the festival that stinks!

Volunteers are what make the Garlic and Arts Festival possible. They help direct parking, welcome guests, collect admissions, oversee recycling projects, help out as stage hands, and a myriad of other jobs. Most volunteer shifts are for 4 hours, either 9:30 to 1:30 or 1:15 to 5:15.  There are two ways in which to volunteer at the festival:  by volunteering as an individual or by putting together a team.

Individual volunteers receive free weekend admission, a festival volunteer T-shirt, and a treat from the wood-fired bread oven.  It’s a great way to meet a lot of neat people and have a bunch of fun! Please fill out the following form to be an individual volunteer and you will be contacted by a festival organizer. Please do not use the volunteer form for a vendor inquiry.

Be sure to hit the Submit button after you fill out the form.


You can also put together a team of eight or more people to help with parking at the festival for one full day (9:30 AM – 5:15 PM).  Your team can then select a local non-profit organization and the festival committee will donate $250 to that non-profit in your names (teams get free admission too).  Team volunteers receive free weekend admission and a treat from the bread oven (no T-shirt).  They should be prepared for the weather, whatever it is, and have water, a hat, sunscreen, footwear appropriate to walking a field, lip balm, and bug spray at a minimum.  To put together a team of volunteers for parking, please fill out this form and hit Submit:


If you are volunteering for our festival be sure to check with your volunteer coordinator before the festival regarding parking and shuttle bus options specifically for your shifts.
