This opportunity has passed.


Event Description: As Durham’s signature arts festival, CenterFest showcases juried visual artists from near and far, and fills multiple stages with music, dance, and more from local performers. Serious art shoppers will be dazzled by world-class ceramics, paintings, jewelry, fiber art, woodwork, and everything in between – much of it from Durham and Triangle-based creators. CenterFest happens because of people like you- each year, over 300 volunteers contribute to the effort of pulling this festival together. Take a look at each volunteer job description listed in the sign ups below, and pick the role(s) and time(s) that are most appealing to you. Please dress for the weather, drink lots of water, and have a great time! We will have optional volunteer information sessions at the Durham Arts Council on Wednesday, September 18th at 12:30 PM and 5:30 PM if you would like to familiarize yourself with the event before the day of the festival.

Position Description: Help the 140 visual artists find their spots, set-up booths, trouble shoot, booth-sit during much needed breaks, and help deliver meals.

You will either be stationed at the Artist Services Booth (across from the Volunteer Check-In Tent in the Durham Arts Council parking lot on Morris Street), or you will be deployed to float around the artist tents, checking in on the artists and booth-sitting when required.
