How to Volunteer

Be a part of the Festival’s new “Street Team”

The Columbia Festival of the Arts Street Team is an exciting new opportunity for volunteers to get more involved in the Festival. This special group of volunteers will play an important role in promoting the Festival by sharing their love of the Festival with others through word of mouth, through email and social media, and by talking to businesses in the community. As insiders, the Street Team will be able to learn about many Festival events before the general public.

Interested – fill out this form and return it to the CFA office by mail or fax: 2016 Street Team Interest Form

Not sure how you’d like to be involved?

There are a wide variety of volunteer opportunities available for all ages and skill levels- if you’re interested in being a part of bringing the Festival to life each year, click here: New Volunteers

Festival volunteer opportunities are often listed online through the Volunteer Center.
