The Pembroke Arts Festival is a volunteer-run community organization, and we need your help!
How to Help

Whether you're an artist or an art lover, student, senior or somewhere in between, we invite you to get involved with this beloved Pembroke summer tradition.
The Pembroke Arts Festival relies on an army of volunteers before, during and after the event. Please have a look at the list below and choose an assignment that suits your schedule and your interest. Or let us slot you in where the need is greatest.
This is a great opportunity for students to earn some community service hours, or for anyone to be a part of a wonderful community event. Some jobs require a bit of strength (moving artwork, moving and setting up panels) others require only a smile (sitting at the entrance and handing out programs or selling t-shirts). There really is something for everyone.
All volunteers will receive two free tickets to the Friday evening awards ceremony.
Please contact our volunteer coordinator Penny Winn if you would like to lend a hand, or if you have any questions.
