WE LOVE OUR AUTUMN & ART VOLUNTEERS!

 

The health & safety of our Volunteers remains our highest priority! Because of Sedgwick County's current COVID restrictions we will not have our 2020 Autumn & Art in person. We are moving Autumn & Art to virtual this year. Our Volunteers at Autumn & Art are essential to making Wichita Festivals events happen. We will miss seeing many of your faces during our annual onsite event at Bradley Fair.

Exciting news! We do have opportunities to see our energetic, friendly Volunteers during Virtual Autumn & Art this year. We will ensure we adhere to the social distancing, hand sanitizing, groups under 15 and mask wearing requirements to keep everyone safe. During the first 2 weeks of September, we will be assembling our Patron Patio Party boxes. We will also have a special delivery system put in place to get our special boxes to our Patrons. If you are interested in helping with our Virtual Event please contact Jill, Director of Volunteers, at jill@wichitafestivals.com or 267.2817.

We look forward to seeing the rest of our AMAZING VOLUNTEERS, at next year’s 2021 Autumn & Art!

COME PREPARED

  • Get Informed. Look through our web site before you get to Autumn & Art and visit pages like our participating Artists. Learn as much as you can about Autumn & Art, since once you put on that volunteer shirt, people will come to YOU for information!
  • Wear Comfortable Walking Shoes. Volunteers are on their feet frequently during Autumn & Art, and no one likes blisters!
  • Dress For the Weather. Wear sunscreen and bring sunglasses if it’s bright out. Wearing weather appropriate clothing ensures that you enjoy your time at the Fair! It’s September in Kansas, so bring a jacket!
  • Drink Plenty of Water. We will have water available for Volunteers at Welcome Centers & Artist Hospitality
  • Be Flexible. Autumn & Art is an exciting, fast-paced environment where things can change on a dime. It’s a huge help to us when volunteers are patient and understand that we may need them to do a different task than they’d originally been assigned. That being said, we’ll do our best to keep you happy and busy!

Have Fun! You’re helping art thrive in your community - what could be better than that?!

Thank you! Autumn & Art wouldn’t be the same without you!
