Support the Arts: Become a Volunteer at the Downtown Festival & Art Show
Cater to your creative side and lend a hand in Gainesville’s art community by volunteering at the 37th Annual Downtown Festival & Art Show. Gainesville is a hub of creativity in North Central Florida, and our community takes pride in its hardworking artistic element that thrives to make the city bright and culturally satisfying year round. Now in its 37th year, the Downtown Festival & Art Show is our city’s most anticipated event. Ranked as one of the “Top 200 Events” in the nation since 1996, the Festival continues to grow each year. Volunteers are a large part of what makes this event so successful. Through the support of dedicated community members, the Festival is able to run smoothly and continues to be an event everyone will enjoy. Volunteering at this event is a great way to get involved in the community while having fun at the same time. Volunteer Benefits
