Volunteer at the Festival

LDAF Volunteers 2016
 
Volunteer this Labor Day!
 

Our volunteer sign-up is now through a database of community volunteer opportunities offered in partnership with Experience Columbus. When you start the registration, it will prompt you for your name and email address so it can pull up your information if you are already in the database. The information you enter is secure and not shared with anyone. You will, however, be asked if you are interested in other community volunteer opportunities, it is your choice to opt-in for that or not.

 
The new system offers you the opportunity to share your volunteer commitment on Facebook and Twitter. Share away! To learn more about Volunteer with Columbus please click here and search for “Arlington” and then sign up for
various shifts in the following areas: art activities, information, set-up & tear-down, refreshments and performances.
 
Thank you to all of the 2016 festival volunteers! This event would not be possible without you.

Coordinating Committee

Be a part of the art and join our Coordinating Committee. Our dynamic group of volunteers who plan the Festival, begin monthly meetings in January. In July the Coordinating Committee meets with City Staff, the Coordinating Committee's counterparts, to finalize details of the Festival. The Art Activities Committee works with the Parks & Forestry Division to layout the site and arrange for the physical needs of the space and supplies. The Artists' Management Committee works with the Parks & Forestry Division to accommodate artists' needs and to mark the site for booth space. The Committee also works with the Logistics Committee to arrange the physical space at Northam Park. The Logistics Committee also works with the Fire Division, the Police Department, Electrical Division and the Streets Division to discuss everything from compliance to grass murals. Our Performance Committee relies on the Parks & Forestry Division, Electrical Division and the Streets Division to help move performers in and out of Northam Park all day. The Refreshments Committee works with the Fire Division, Parks & Forestry Division, and the Electrical Division to ensure vendors are following city codes and providing safe and delicious food and beverages. The Volunteer Committee works with the Parks & Recreation Department to move people around the site and provide for artists' support, as well as, support to run the Festival. 
 
By working with City Staff, the Community gains a better understanding of their community and how its government serves them. It is truly gratifying to watch the interaction. For more information or to join this dynamic group, call Lynette Santoro-Au 614-583-5312.
