Help make the 10th Anniversary Prairie Fest the best ever!

Some of the volunteer tasks that we need help with:

Before and After the festival

  • Set up festival site on Friday (includes marking grid spaces, posting signs, etc) 
  • Help exhibitors set up on Saturday morning before the festival begins 
  • After the festival ends (approximately 8pm) help breakdown, gather tables, pick up trash and load the box van, etc. 

During the festival

  • Headquarters runners: take messages, etc. between HQ and various other festival locations as needed
  • Single occupant booth relievers: sometimes there's just one person tending a booth for 8 hours; you can make their day by giving them a break.
  • Art runners: check on artists, bring finished work to the gallery
  • Gallery attendant
  • Science & Education Zone:  Lead a one hour hike for kids between 11 am and 4 pm.  Training required.  Register here for hike leader training (You do not need to register on this page as well).  Contact Heather Foote for details:

In addition to our gratitude, volunteers receive a drink coupon for 4 hours of volunteer time and a meal & drink coupon for 6 hours.


On Friday April 24, volunteers are needed 10am-7pm; On Saturday April 25, volunteers are needed from morning to sundown. (2 hr. minimum please)
