Art City Austin, an iconic Austin weekend-long arts festival. This year's festival will take place April 29-May 1, 2016. I am reaching out to see if the Chestnut Neighborhood Association would be interested in volunteering. Art City is Austin's original fine arts festival and this year it is expanding to the Palmer Event Center downtown. It will have booths from 25 galleries and hundreds of artists, as well as live music and food and drink vendors! The festival attracts 20,000 attendees each year and requires 400 volunteers to make this event a success. We are looking for volunteers in all areas including greeting attendees at the front gates, helping with crafts in the kids block, helping recycle and many more opportunities. Volunteers who work a full 3 hour shift will receive free admission into the festival.
