It takes a village to run the Sausalito Art Festival, and every year more than 1,500 dedicated, engaged, community-minded and fun volunteers step up to make the three-day event happen!

Volunteers enjoy the satisfaction of being part of a community that makes this world-class event a reality in their own backyard. Friendships are often developed that last well beyond the Festival and many times volunteers participate as families, friends, or work/school-related groups. Working at the Festival gives participants an exclusive, behind-the-scenes appreciation of the artists and art that make the Festival so enticing and fun.

Volunteers are needed in all areas of Festival operations, including security, artist relations, guest services, general operations, beverage sales, and merchandise sales. Volunteers receive free admission to the Festival on the day they work, a commemorative T-shirt and are invited to attend the annual volunteer appreciation party. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old to volunteer and over 21 years of age to participate in alcoholic beverage sales. All volunteers will be required to attend a volunteer orientation. We look forward to seeing you next year!
