We need your help!

Sustaining Summerfest demands both financial support AND dedicated volunteers. Without your help, Summerfest can’t continue. From site setup to strategic planning, Summerfest takes 100’s of hours every year.

If you’re able and willing, we’re still looking for volunteers for this year’s event, and especially need folks to help us on the Summerfest Committee planning for 2017 and beyond.

Many 2016 Volunteer positions are still unfilled. Please contact us for details.

NEW - The staff at our new free kids' activities area needs volunteers (age 12+) to engage with kids: read books, sing songs, play tag, time relay races, facilitate arts and crafts activities, and more!
