SaratogaArtsFest: Ways to Get Involved

On MAY 28 from 5:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. SAF will host an informational gathering for VOLUNTEERS at the Saratoga Springs Public Library. We hope to see you there and welcome you to the 2014 festival experience!

SaratogaArtsFest is a volunteer-led organization. We have three different levels of volunteer commitments. Read the descriptions and then try and identify the role that suits you best.

Leadership Volunteers

"I'm looking for a substantial role! I've got ideas, experience, and commitment."
Leadership Volunteers make a year-round commitment to the organization. As members of the Board of Directors or managers of specific areas related to festival planning, these volunteers have typically worked during previous festivals or have experience in a specialized area (arts management and production, marketing, non-profit accounting, fundraising, etc.).

SAF always welcomes anyone interested in being a Leadership Volunteer. However, SAF is particularly interested in finding Leadership Volunteers to join our Operations Team after this year's 2014 festival has come to a close. Specific areas of need include:

For additional information on the requirements and job responsibilities for these positions, please contact Laura K. Herr, Executive Director of SAF at

Committee Volunteers

"I'd like to take on an interesting short-term project for a few weeks or maybe a few months. I'm organized and I like behind-the-scenes work that gets results."
Committee Volunteers can take on tasks ranging from something small (lasting only a few hours) to a larger role during the planning phase.

Currently, SAF is looking for Committee Volunteers to help with task oriented projects relating to our Audience Relations division, as well as specific task oriented projects related to our 2014 Festival Programming.

Ambassador Volunteers

"I want to help during the festival weekend in June. I'm friendly, reliable, and like to assist the public."
Ambassador volunteers provide assistance during SaratogaArtsFest weekend. They act as greeters in venues, as venue supervisors, or take on a variety of other tasks as needed during the weekend. The time commitment can be anywhere from two hours to all weekend.
