The Scottsdale Arts Festival is the proud winner of the 2017 International Festivals & Events Association’s Pinnacle Award

for the Best Volunteer Program!


The Scottsdale Arts Festival welcomes individuals and groups to volunteer. The festival requires about 350 volunteers over the 3 days to help within many areas. Volunteering is a great way to support Scottsdale Arts and the programs that benefit from our annual fundraiser. The Scottsdale Arts Festival would not be a success without our volunteers! 

Each volunteer receives a festival t-shirt and a complimentary festival ticket to use on a day that you are not scheduled to volunteer.

The festival volunteer shift is approximately 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day and complimentary lunch is provided. 

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Lemonade stands
  • Bar/beverage booths
  • Retail booths
  • Membership
  • Community Art Studio
  • Family area
  • Barter Boat
  • Online art auction
  • Artist hospitality
