Festival offers volunteer opportunities for everyone!

It takes a village to staff an event  – a village of 1,500+ volunteers for Festival of the Arts every year.

We love our volunteers and celebrate their dedication to this legacy event.

Festival offers volunteer opportunities for everyone! Volunteer commitments can range anywhere from a one-time commitment of a few hours on Festival weekend to a few hours every week year-round. If you are looking for volunteer hours for work or school, we are happy to help.

Some of our largest volunteer needs include:

  • Children’s Activities – Paint In, Glue In, Mad Hatter and more
  • Regional Arts Exhibit @ Kendall College of Art and Design of Ferris State University
  • Production – help set up and tear down Festival stages and more
  • Stage Crew
  • Clean-Up

If you would like to join our team, please fill out the registration form below and someone will get back with you very soon!

Who is your “Spirit of Festival”? 

In addition to great volunteer opportunities, we are looking for a volunteer who embodies the Spirit of Festival to win the 2019 Diane Casey “Spirit of Festival” award. If you have someone in mind, please nominate them!
