Columbus, Ohio – The Columbus Arts Festival is seeking volunteers to serve on the Coordinating Committee for the 52nd annual Columbus Arts Festival, June 7, 8 & 9, 2013. The Coordinating Committee assists with several aspects of planning and execution of this annual festival, produced by the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
Coordinating Committee volunteers spend up to 100 hours working on the Festival from November through June. Volunteers also are largely responsible for the on-site execution of the event, requiring a significant time commitment the weekend of the Festival.
Experience in special events or with the arts is not necessary, but energy, enthusiasm and the ability to work as part of a team are essential. These are working committees and require a strong personal commitment. Availability during the Festival dates is required.
Individuals interested in being considered for a Coordinating Committee position should apply online at ColumbusArtsFestival.org.
The Columbus Arts Festival, which has returned to its home at the beautifully revitalized downtown Riverfront, is consistently ranked nationally as one of the nation’s best outdoor festivals. The 2013 Festival will incorporate new and fun interactive features, feature fine art and fine craft from approximately 250 nationally acclaimed artists, along with continuous live entertainment, gourmet food and hands-on art activities for all ages.
