Be a part of the biggest event of the year!
As a resident of Virginia-Highland, you no doubt know that Summerfest is the largest fundraiser benefiting our neighborhood. Proceeds from the festival go directly to maintain, beautify and improve the safety of our community. Summerfest is also one of Atlanta’s oldest and most prestigious art and music festivals. We need your help to keep it that way. With the growing popularity of neighboring communities and the oversaturation of festivals and weekly road races, it gets tougher and tougher to stand out from the crowd. It’s essential that we do and it’s our volunteers that can make that happen.
Please consider giving back to your community by volunteering for one or more shifts (2-3 hours) and help make this year’s Summerfest one of the best ever. Volunteer opportunities are plentiful, supporting nearly all aspects of Summerfest including:
Summerfest Parade – it’s going to be SUPER!
Community Dinner and a Movie
5K Road Race and Tot-Trot
The Artist Market
Commemorative T-shirt Sales
Kidsfest – it’s not just for kids anymore.
Festival Set-up and Teardown
Double the fun by signing up to volunteer with friends and family. Volunteers do not need to be residents of our neighborhood…the more the merrier. And don’t forget, all volunteers receive one of the coveted commemorative Summerfest t-shirts.
