Greetings Sedona Arts Festival Volunteers!
We are in the final planning stages for the 27th annual Sedona Arts Festival.
If you are available on October 7 and/or 8, we hope you will join us. We need lots of help and we’re a fun bunch. If you are interested in volunteering this year, please contact the Team Leader for the area that you are interested in listed below. Even if you have spoken with an area leader about volunteering, please reach out to them at this time. Thank you!
Front Gate – Contact Joy Sinnott
Call 970-946-3981 or email: [email protected]
Involves handling cash and smiling all the time! We like our friendliest faces to help at the front gate because you are the first people our customers see! We use iPads for all transactions so a basic knowledge of Square is helpful, but not necessary. It’s simple and quick to learn!
Raffle – Contact Reba Stone
Call 708-819-5503 or email: [email protected]
CO-CHAIR NEEDED. If you are organized and love working out the details, we could use your help! You DO NOT have to solicit raffle prizes. All raffle items are donated by our participating festival artists. If you’re interested, contact Reba!
Raffle volunteers: Duties include handling cash and making change. 100% of our raffle proceeds goes to cash scholarships for area art students!
Artist Support – Contact Julie Talbot
Call 928-202-1228 or email: [email protected]
Artist Support involves providing customer service to our participating artists. We provide them with coffee and breakfast snacks, water throughout the day, and “Booth Sitters” to watch their booths while they take a short break.
Fine Art Gallery – Contact Cheryl Waale
Call 206-954-2251 or email: [email protected]
This is our newest area of the festival! We need assistance with artist check-in on Thursday morning (Oct 5), sales in the Fine Art Gallery tent during the festival (requires use of iPad/Square) and check out Sunday afternoon.
Site Support – Contact Lori Reinhart
Call 928-204-9456 or email: [email protected]
MEN NEEDED. Set up on Friday, October 6 involves helping with artist arrival. A variety of tasks are needed throughout the day as we hang banners, set up tables and chairs, and assist the artists with set up. Late Sunday afternoon we need help getting all the artists off the field. Some help needed on Monday, October 9, as we get everything off the field, cleaned up, and back to our storage unit. IF YOU HAVE A GOLF CART OR AN ATV (or know someone who would let us borrow), WE COULD USE VEHICLES ON THE FIELD.
We are always looking for new additions to our Sedona Arts Festival Board of Directors. If you would like to contribute to the continued success of Sedona’s oldest and largest premiere arts event, we would love to have you on our team! Or if you know of someone who would be a great fit, please contact festival director Lori Reinhart – [email protected] or 928-204-9456.
Thank you SO MUCH for considering volunteering. The Sedona Arts Festival is a big, wonderful community event that supports art scholarships and art education for our area youth. You are such a big part of that! We look forward to seeing you again!
