May & Dual 2019 Festival Applications Now Available!

Volunteers truly help create LEAF! Your gift of service to LEAF Community Arts make an impact during signature events (LEAF Festival & LEAF Downtown) and supporting LEAF’s cultural arts education locally (LEAF Schools & Streets) and globally (LEAF International). 


LEAF Festival Volunteer Overview:

Volunteers help create LEAF Festival each May and October!  We count on the service of 500+ volunteers to help make LEAF come to life-wow! Volunteer opportunities include assisting the Boathouse crew to get people in canoes & kayaks, prepare yummy meals in Eden Hall, serving up local brews & beverages at Concessions, help people out at First Aid, customer service with Zoom and so much more that truly helps make LEAF happen!
 
In recent years, volunteer slots have been filling up more and more quickly. We accept volunteer applications until all shifts have been filled. The team is always trying to improve to accommodate our growing organization, generosity of volunteers and the needs of our fun crews! Spring volunteer applications open on January 1st and Fall volunteer applications open on July 20th. We look forward to working with you and thank you for your contribution to LEAF!
