EDMOND — The 34th annual Downtown Edmond Arts Festival committee is looking for volunteers for the event, scheduled May 3-5.
Committee members said they need 40 volunteers each day. Volunteers can be as young as 12, said Christine Gibson, volunteer coordinator.
Volunteers are needed to relieve artists who need to leave their booths for a few minutes, and in the children's area. Volunteer shifts are for two hours.
“For volunteering you'll receive a free T-shirt and the pleasure of making your local arts festival a success,” Gibson said.
The arts festival is from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. May 3 and May 4 and from 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. May 5.
The 2013 festival will feature 120 artists from throughout the United States. The festival continues to grow each year with a host of new artists joining the very popular event and many longtime favorites returning to show their art.
The media consist of oil/acrylic, watercolor, pastels, sculptures and pen and ink. Also, featured will be pottery, jewelry, photography, caricature, designer craft and graphics, blown glass and jewelry.
Downtown Edmond Arts Festival supports a special charity each year. This year's charity is Angels Foster Family Network OKC.
Music from schools and various bands will be heard throughout the downtown streets during the three-day arts festival.
