Summerfest Arts Faire seeks volunteers

The 2017 Summerfest Art Faire on the grounds of the Logan Tabernacle. 

Now in its 34<sup>th</sup> year, the <a href=””>Summerfest Arts Faire</a> is coming up next month, taking place June 15-17, on the grounds of the Logan Tabernacle. Elaine Thatcher, Summerfest’s director, said it takes more than 300 volunteers each year to help make the festival happen.

Thatcher said members of the Summerfest board of directors each take an area of responsibility in preparation for the event, such as food, hospitality, <a href=””>plein air contests</a>, music and more. She said businesses like Herberger’s, Thermo-Fisher and Conservice likewise provide great help by organizing their employees to staff shifts during the festival. There are also several opportunities available for Eagle Scout projects.

“We have jobs of all sorts,” Thatcher said. “We have, for instance, a bike valet where we need people to just sit in the shade and make sure that people, if they bring their bike and want to park it, that it’s secure inside the enclosure. They hand them a tag and put a tag on their bike, and then the people can go off and enjoy Summerfest and the volunteers just stay there at the bike valet, so that’s one. We [also] need help in the ‘Creation Station,’ which is our family art yard—it used to be known as, and people have a lot of fun there.”

Anyone interested in <a href=””>volunteering for Summerfest</a> can call Thatcher at 435-213-3858 or email <a href=””></a>.  Complete event information is available at <a href=”” target=”_blank”></a>.
