100% Volunteer-run festival needs help

100% Volunteer-run festival needs help

The Black Swamp Arts Festival runs on the sweat equity of the community, and now is the time to fill up.

The festival, which will run Friday, Sept. 8, through Sunday, Sept. 10, has issued a call to fill the many volunteer spots still available. Volunteers are needed from set upon Friday morning through tear down on Sunday late afternoon.

Gate monitors, who check those entering and exiting the beer garden area, and volunteers in the Youth Art area are in particular demand.

“We are still in need of volunteers this year in a number of areas and are hoping the community will rally to pick up one or more of the shifts available,” said Todd Ahrens, who chairs  the all-volunteer committee that presents the annual event.

“Be part of the fun,” said Wynn Perry, who chairs the festival volunteer committee. “People usually do have fun.”

Volunteers can sign up by visiting the festival’s website at:  www.blackswampfest.org and click on the Volunteer link at the top of the page. Most shifts are two to three hours long.

“Volunteers are a vital part of the Festival,” Ahrens said.  “From set up Friday morning to take down on Sunday evening, about 1,000 volunteers support activities to make the Festival run smoothly.”

Ahrens added: “As we prepare to celebrate our 25th anniversary, we appreciate how much the Bowling Green community supports the arts and are especially grateful to the volunteers who help make it happen.”
