Volunteers Needed

First and foremost, by volunteering at an arts festival you will  of course be supporting your local creative scene. La Quinta Art Celebration lays claim to some of the most influential artists, in a venue unlike any other.  In a city like ours, which pops with artistic expression, giving up a little of your time and energy to ensure that the city retains its artsy reputation for years to come is a fabulous way to love your city back, Have fun, and meet great new friends.

– Rhonda Larson, Retail Captain 

My husband and I have volunteered with the LQ Art Celebration since its inception and it has truly been a blessing.  The venue is beautiful, the artists are the best of the best, and we enjoy serving and socializing with the artists and other volunteers.

– Carol O’ Donnell, Hospitality Captain
