Volunteers Needed!

Fair Weekend
Saturday, March 4, and Sunday March 5, 2017

 Volunteers are needed in many areas both Saturday and Sunday in AM, Mid-day or PM shifts. Come for one, or two or three shifts–whatever your schedule and stamina allow.

Mix your areas. Ask your friends and family to volunteer. Enjoy the Fair and help the Guild and our artists.


Your volunteer badge entitles you to free admission both Saturday and Sunday regardless of when you volunteer! 2016 Badges may be picked up any time Saturday or Sunday at the Volunteer Placement Booth.

Booth Relief

Volunteers circulate offering relief to artists so they may leave their booths for a break, to eat, to visit fellow artists, etc. Volunteers sit in the artists’ booths to safeguard art and let potential buyers know when to return. No selling.
