Lovers of LakeFest and the Arts

Columbia Festival of the Arts is preparing for Lakefest 2019, which will occur 14-16 June. Have you ever wondered what it takes to bring all that amazing art and spectacular performances to the Lakefront at no cost to Festival attendees?

Teams are needed to:

  • provide assistance and food to performers backstage
  • provide breaks for artists in booths
  • sell performer and festival merchandise
  • assist with loading/unloading/transporting artwork and supplies to artists' booths
  • man the information booth
  • provide office support, and
  • assist in ensuring the Festival's environmental control efforts are effective.

Each day will be divided into three shifts, with each shift lasting approximately four hours between 9:30 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Sign up for one shift or multiple shifts; one day or multiple days; as an individual or a team. Two separate offerings of training will be provided in late May/early June.

For additional information on the Festival and volunteering, please see the Columbia Festival of the Arts website, You may also consider attending our Volunteer Recruitment Event on 28 March from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at Slayton House in Columbia.
