Volunteer with Us!

Along with significant event modifications, we have COVID-19 safety protocols for visitors, staff, and volunteers to keep everyone safe. Volunteers, staff, and vendors must adhere to the following:

  • Wear a mask at all times
  • Practice social-distancing of at least 6' when possible
  • Wash/sanitize your hands regularly
  • Take a health assessment and temperature check prior to coming to the festival
  • Stay home if you have symptoms
  • Before beginning your shift, get a temperature check at the check-in booth
  • Festival guests must wear a mask at all times (other than eating) and practice social distancing of at least 6' away from others. They are asked to stay home if they have any symptoms or feel ill.

Individuals and Groups are welcome as volunteers at the Tempe Festivals of the Arts. Each festival requires about 350 volunteers to help manage on-site functions important to the conduct of the event. Sign up solo to meet new people. Or, sign up with your group to fulfill employers’ and organizations’ volunteer commitments while having fun!

Volunteering is a fun way to see the Festival from a different perspective, meet new people, and promote art in the community. Volunteering is a great way to serve the event and also the greater community, as well as being a source of enjoyment and pride. Meet a variety of people from all walks of life, see what happens behind the scenes, and, through your service, help make the event possible.

Volunteer Opportunities

All Festival Volunteer jobs are outside at our rain-or-shine event. The site is large, so your ability to navigate the site and willingness to endure all types of weather are important requirements. Every volunteer receives the Official Tempe Festival of the Arts Volunteer T-Shirt, which must be worn while working at the Festival. The Festival will conduct a background check for all volunteers working with children, dealing with merchandise or cash, and for everyone driving golf carts.

Looking for: Artist Area Hospitality, Welcome Crew, Event Prep, and more!
