It takes a village to put on a world-class Arts Festival.

We couldn’t pull this off without our volunteers! We invite you to join us through volunteering to give back to your community, meet your neighbors, and assist us in fulfilling our mission. We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities available during the Festival in June, and all year long if you’re interested in becoming more involved. The Edmonds Arts Festival is managed by an all-volunteer board of directors consisting of more than 20 members and committees who meet throughout the year to assure a first-class event. In addition, we have a wide variety of volunteer positions that are filled by hundreds of supportive community members who provide countless hours of their time during the Festival. We’d love to have you join us!

Thank you to our 2016 Festival volunteers.
The Edmonds Arts Festival Association heartily thanks the hundreds of volunteers who made the Festival such a wonderful event for our community. The Festival was totally dependent on the time and effort our unpaid heroes donated – volunteers who helped before, during, and after the 3-day event. We extend a huge THANK YOU to each and every one.


Throughout the Year
Opportunities to volunteer are available throughout the year either on the board or organizational committees. If you’re interested in participating more than just during the Festival in June, please send an inquiry through the “Contact” menu on this site. We’d be happy to discuss the possibilities with you.

During the Festival
Volunteers fill myriad jobs during the Festival including checking in the art for the juried galleries, helping sell art during the Festival, staffing information booths, serving breakfast or dinner to hungry artists, checking in volunteers, greeting visitors, handing out programs, and more. You can sign up to volunteer at areas that are of most interest to you.
