Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Corvallis Fall Festival! We cannot thank them enough. Volunteering for Corvallis Fall Festival is positive and rewarding time-well-spent. Our volunteers’ efforts help bring the community together to celebrate the arts, and we have a lot of fun making it all happen.
The following are descriptions of typical volunteer positions we look to fill in order to make the festival happen every year.
Art Lover: Get an insider’s view while you booth sit for artists, giving them a much needed break throughout both Saturday and Sunday of the festival weekend. Boothsitter Sign Up
Friday Artists Check-In and Park Traffic Control: Although there is a ton of action that takes place on Saturday and Sunday of the festival, we need just as much help from our volunteers on Friday as we welcome artists to Central Park!
