Arts at the Gardens would not happen without volunteers. An all-volunteer committee oversees every facet of the show, from artist selection to publicity to food  to end-of-show take down.

Artists rave about our very visible show day volunteers:  “You take excellent care of us.”  “The show is beautifully run.”

Our volunteers:

Direct parking
Collect admissions
Sell food and raffle tickets, beer and wine
Assist artists with set up and take down
Serve refreshments at our Artist Reception.

Would you like to join an enthusiastic group of volunteers?

Most volunteers work two and half hour shifts between 10 and 5 on the Saturday and Sunday of Arts at the Garden weekend.  Volunteers receive free admission to the show, gardens and mansion.  All are eligible for our volunteer appreciation raffle.
