The Utah Arts Festival will take some 900 volunteers to make it run smoothly this year.
The 1996 version will begin on Thursday, June 27, and run through Sunday, June 30. And it's not too early at all to be thinking about lending a hand."It takes hundred of volunteers to pull off this huge art event that attracts more than 80,000 people." festival executive director Robyn Nelson says.
For this 20th Arts Festival, volunteers can do face painting, sell T-shirts or set up exhibits. Volunteers will receive free admission to the festival on the day they volunteer along with the option to purchase a reduced pass for another visit and a free volunteer festival T-shirt.
The Utah Arts Festival promotes the arts in Utah through the festival's celebration of the arts, including performance, visual and literary.
Anyone interested in volunteering may call the Utah Arts Festival volunteer hotline at 322-5912.
