Volunteer at the 2019 Mountain View Arts Festival
Where would a community be without the many volunteers who give back their expertise, talents, and time to benefit others?

Making a difference in your community starts with the Mountain View Arts Society. It's flagship, the Mountain View Arts Festival, has a committee that 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 2019. 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. Our 2018 Volunteer Job Descriptions, will give you an idea of what we're looking for in 2019. We believe sharing the volunteer workload helps make 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 2019 Arts Festival, we are not only looking for volunteers who might like to help out on Festival Days, but for the organizing committee as well. Positions are many and varied. Some examples are: helping children make this year's Make-Your-Own-Souvenir crafts, assisting with set-up and take-down, 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 7th or 8th) or for set-up and take down. If you want to sit on the organizing committee, plan on about 4 meetings a year, usually only about 2 hours each.

If you are interested in making a difference in your community, please call 403-994-0494.

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

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.
