Volunteers are the smiling faces that welcome people to our region and show East Lansing Art Festival patrons and participants what a great art-loving community we enjoy. Festival Volunteers do an outstanding job and keep the festival fun and running smoothly all weekend long. Volunteers are the reason the East Lansing Art Festival is rated as a top 100 Fine Art Festival in the nation! Volunteers have a lot of fun and get a free festival t-shirt!
All Volunteers will receive a free festival t-shirt. A Volunteer Orientation is hosted at the East Lansing Marriott at University Place with light refreshments.
The East Lansing Art Festival is a non-profit community event established to enhance the sense of community and appreciation of art, culture and creativity in East Lansing and the greater Lansing region. The festival needs your financial support to keep the arts free and accessible to all! Please contact the festival office for info about our sponsor levels and recognition packages and learn how you can become a valued sponsor.
