Dunwoody Art Festival needs volunteers - May 7 and 8

Volunteer, click here

Plans for Dunwoody Art Festival 2011 are in full swing.  The Festival will be Mother’s Day weekend, May 7 & 8.  This year, we’re hosting 180 local, regional and national artisans who create fun and whimsical work.

Looking toward this year’s Festival, we can’t help but remember the success of last year’s event.  Volunteers were certainly one of the big reasons that Dunwoody Art Festival was just named “Best New Event” by the Southeast Festivals and Events Association. The Mother’s Day show picked up the gold medal among festivals from Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.  We truly feel we won this prestigious honor because of all of you – our wonderful volunteers who helped present this colorful and whimsical show to the Dunwoody community. Without your support and generosity, the Festival would not have reached this level of success.  We share this award with you!

 Get Your Free T-shirt
Dunwoody Crier readers voted and decided that the whimsical owl by Karen Fincannon will grace the front of the official Dunwoody Art Festival t-shirt.  All volunteers will receive one of these colorful shirts, which they will wear during their volunteer shifts at the event.

Chamblee Dunwoody Road will close between Mt. Vernon Road and Dunwoody Village Parkway and will be transformed into Main St. with thousands of visitors and volunteers.  We hope to see you there!

Win Gift Certificates To Our Fabulous Dunwoody Restaurants
Over 350 volunteers are needed to produce this fun and exciting event that Dunwoody friends and neighbors can call their own. As a thank-you, we’re having a weekly drawing for a $25 gift certificate from some of our local restaurants. Three lucky volunteers will each win one of these treats every week.  To win, you must be signed up to volunteer:
- There is no limit on the number of times you can win.
- The more positions you sign up for, the more chances you have to win.
- The earlier you sign up, the greater the chances you have of winning.
- Winners will be drawn each Wednesday through May 4 and will be announced weekly.
- Winners may pick up their gift certificates during the Festival at the Volunteer Check-in tent
Thank you for your wonderful show of community spirit in the great City of Dunwoody.  If you have any questions regarding volunteering, please feel free to contact me at DunwoodyArtFestival@gmail.com.
