Become a part of the CFA volunteer family
The Festival can’t happen without the help of volunteers. We rely volunteers to help with all aspects of the Festival, from office tasks to ushering to on-site support during events. The commitment can be as little as 4 hours and you choose your volunteer task based on your availability and interests.
It’s an opportunity to have fun through helping to make the arts available to all. Volunteers who help at Festival events receive a free t-shirt, free stand-by seating to ticketed events, invitation to the volunteer picnic in July, and other free gifts.
