I volunteered at ARTFEST last year and had a blast. If you're volunteering, I recommend requesting to be one of the angels. The angels watch over the booths when the artists need to take a break for a few minutes. Instead of selling t-shirts and beer, you're helping out the artists.
ARTFEST is one of the premier Fine Arts shows & festivals in the nation, integrating fine art, kids arts, music, performing arts, artists demonstrations and fun for everyone. Over 200 artists will showcase fine art for every taste, fancy or budget, including paintings, sculptures, wood working, iron works, jewelry and much, much more . There will also be a Live Music Stage featuring local & regional musicians and a Cultural Arts Stage featuring artists demonstrations by ARTFEST artists and performances by cultural arts organizations from all over the Metroplex.
ARTFEST is produced by The 500 Inc., a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization whose purpose is to raise vital financial, volunteer and training support for the Dallas arts community. Proceeds from ARTFEST benefit cultural arts organizations in Dallas.
