The Peggy’s Cove Area Festival of the Arts is a celebration of our local talent, and a labour of love from our communities. That’s why volunteers are integral to the success of this event, and help bring the Festival to life.
HOW TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Distribution of Literature
We need help in distributing Studio Tour Guides and Festival Posters.
Sandwich board signs set up in locations along Highways 3, 329, and 333 direct our visitors to events throughout the festival. We are looking for individuals to volunteer with setting up signs on July 8th and again on July 13th, and also picking up the signs at the end of the festival on July19th. If you have access to a truck or large car, please let us know.
Festival Information Centre
During the two Festival weekends, we need volunteers to staff the Festival Information Centre, which is at the Community Enterprise Centre (5229 St. Margaret’s Bay Road). Specific dates include July 10, 11, 12 and July 16, 17, 18. The hours will be 10 to 5, so there will be two shifts per day: 10 to 1:30 and 1:30 to 5:00. All necessary Covid protocols will be followed.
Paint Peggy’s Cove
Consider joining us as a volunteer during the three days (July 10, 11 & 12) of plein air painting in Peggy’s Cove. Our mighty volunteers get to interact with participating artists, tourists and local citizens helping out with the art show, assisting the artists and promoting our event with tourists and locals alike. It is an amazing experience. We’re looking for people to volunteer with:
|Yurt Helper||greeting visitors, receiving/inventorying/wrapping art|
|Runner||interacting with artists on-site, bringing art into the Yurt|
|Sales Desk Helper||conducting and recording sales, electronically and by hand|
|Children’s Art Tent Helper||assisting children and managing supplies|
Please join us in this vibrant arts event!
