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.

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.
