Volunteer at the Mountain View Arts Festival
Where would a community be without the many volunteers who give back their expertise, talents, and time to benefit others?

The Mountain View Arts Festival Committee works on the festival celebrations all year round. As a supporter of our local art scene there are a variety of ways you can participate as a volunteer.

If you would like to become a "Festival Goodwill Ambassador", join us in 2017. Whether you're an individual or if your entire club or group want to help out, just say the word and we'll find a spot that showcases your talents and energies.

We believe if our volunteers know what is expected of them, they tend to be more satisfied with their involvement. We have updated our Volunteer Job Descriptions, making each task more manageable. If you see something that interests you, please e-mail us. We welcome individuals of all ages and abilities, as well as service clubs and non-profit organizations.

For our 2017 Arts Festival, we are looking for volunteers who might like to help out on Festival Days. Positions are many and varied. Some examples are: helping children make this year's Make-Your-Own-Souvenir crafts, assisting with gym set-up and take-down for Saturday's concert, helping to set up quilt displays, or even Stage hands at the Elks Hall.

The only qualifications are that you enjoy working/playing with others and helping people have a good time.

Hours vary from task to task, but generally 1 - 3 hour shifts, one or both days (September 9th or 10th) or for set-up and take down.

Specifically, here are the positions we are currently hoping to fill:

If you are interested in learning more, please call 403-335-9445. We need you!

Special thanks to the many organizations who are helping celebrate the arts at our festival. This list will be added to as commitments are made. Please check back.

  • Didsbury High School Drama Class
  • Didsbury High School Leadership Group
  • Didsbury Historical Society
  • Didsbury Lions Club
  • Friends of the Didsbury Library

We hope you will help us spread the word about the Mountain View Arts Festival in Didsbury. This festival provides us an important opportunity to keep the citizens of Didsbury and Mountain View County aware of the importance of the arts in our region.

Those who can, do.
Those who can do more, volunteer.
