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 three 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!

“We were perfectly set up and I had the chance to meet some very fine young people who helped me with the magnet project. Many had never been to the Civic Center!  Families were delighted with all the things to do and see. Volunteers are treated so well, thank you for everything!”
