Plein Air Assistance (age 16+)

The Plein Air room is a busy place during the Arts Faire. Inside, we house all the plein air contest art. These items are sold in our silent auction. Proceeds help fund our activities. What is "Plein Air?" It is artwork that is created in the open air in a short time period. Because we invite the public to come and bid on this artwork throughout the event, we need a few extra volunteers to answer questions and help customers fill out various bid forms.

Volunteer “How-to’s”

Check In

Check in at the volunteer headquarters, the Information Tent, located on the east side of the Event Center, and our volunteer coordinator will direct you to your assignment. Please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled shift time. Wear comfortable shoes and sunscreen. It’s usually hot in Utah in the summertime, but we have been known to get an occasional summer thunderstorm rolling through, so bring a light jacket if the forecast is for rain. Please leave your valuables in your car or at home as we do not have lockers and cannot be responsible for your valuables.

Parking

Parking is available on the east side of the Fairgrounds, in the rodeo arena area on 500 South.

Amenities

All volunteers receive a Summerfest Volunteer T-shirt and an invitation to our Volunteer/Sponsor “Thank You” dinner the week following the event.
