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: Provide friendly assistance to people who need it and give out literature on Durham Arts Council events, classes, etc. Sell CenterFest T-shirts and other items in the t-shirt booth.
At the beginning of your shift, you should review the CenterFest program to be prepared to answer questions such as where an artist is located, what time a band is performing or where the Coke booths are located. Certain Information Booths will also be T-Shirt booths. Assist visitors with finding T-Shirt sizes and colors, but do not handle money. A DAC Staff Member or Board Member will be present to handle all monetary transactions.
