Recruiting Organization: The Works Art & Design Festival

Grounds maintenance volunteers keep the outdoor site environmentally friendly and attractive for all patrons to enjoy. Volunteers are supplied with PPE such as gloves, bags with a long handle, and a Reacher grabber tool. This is a great position for those who do not desire to socialize or interact with the general public or other volunteers too much. This is also a great role for those who wish to volunteer in pairs.

The Works Art & Design Festival is the most unique, free event of its kind. It attracts artists, designers and patrons from around the world - boosting the city’s energy and imagination at the start of each summer. The 2023 Festival dates are July 7th-July 16.
