volunteers wanted

The Kawartha Arts Festival is looking for volunteers for this year’s event, which takes place Labour Day Weekend at the Fenelon Fairgrounds.

If you can spare a few hours and are able to do some physical work during the week leading up to the Festival, or during the event itself, we would love to have you join us!
Perfect for students who need Community Service hours, or anyone who doesn’t mind a bit of physical activity with some laughs and fun thrown in.
Send us a PM on our Facebook page – @kawarthaartsfestival – or by email to canuck.indie.music@gmail.com


Did you know?

The Kawartha Arts Festival was first held in 1989 and started off as a small collection of artists gathering together to give something back to the local arts community. It has since grown into one of the largest art festivals in Southern Ontario and attracts thousands of visitors each year.

The Kawartha Art Festival is a non-profit organization run by dedicated volunteers. It is kept going by the generous donations given each year by the show’s patrons, and we would like to thank each and every one of you to keep the Art Festival growing more unique each year.
