Volunteers are the heartbeat of our festival operations. They serve beverages, help staff artists booths, assist with children’s hands on art activities, provide information and help make our festival visitors feel welcome! We truly could not do this event without them. It is through the help of our volunteers that we are able to keep this festival free to the public and to invest our festival proceeds in arts programs in the community. Tapestry is a nonprofit organization. Every dollar your service to our organization saves us is contributed back into our schools and community centers through arts education and arts outreach programs.


This is a great opportunity to have fun, meet new people, and support a wonderful cause!

Many of our loyal volunteers have been with us for more than 10 years, some as long as the
entire 26 year history of event!

Volunteer Benefits:

  • Beverage tickets

  • FREE Festival T‑Shirt (XL)

  • FREE Parking

  • Meal vouchers for volunteers working multiple days.

Volunteer positions include:

Serving soft drinks, beer and wine:
This is where the action is! If you want to meet people this is the place to do that. Beverage sales are handled by tickets ‑ no cash handling required. We have lots of experienced volunteers who will be happy to show you the ropes.

Helping professional artists in the Creativity Zone as they instruct children and their parents in creating their own artworks:
This is the part of the festival where kids are encouraged to try their hand at their own activities. Anyone who has experience with youngsters would find this a good fit. It's thrilling to watch creativity in action.

Helping staff the information booth:
Located right in the center of the festival, this is the place where our festival visitors come to get directions, secure a program and ask questions. New volunteers will be paired with an experienced information booth supervisor. No fear ‑ you WILL know the answers!

Assistant Area Coordinators:
Joined with an Area Coordinator, this is a key volunteer position. This job requires a fair amount of walking as you will meet and greet artists within a specified area, give them breaks as needed, hand out water during the day and be our "welcome wagon” for our exhibitors. This position requires, at least, a full day commitment.

Shifts range from 4 hours for our regular volunteers to our key volunteer positions which cover all three festival days. You can tailor your volunteer time to suit your schedule.
