Calling all volunteers!

The Chain of Parks Art Fest will be held this year but will be a bit different due to Covid-19 safety precautions. THIS YEAR ONLY, we are asking that only serious art patrons and enthusiasts attend the festival in the parks to support our exhibiting artists, while casual viewers and families sit this one out…and come back next year!

To keep our artists and community safe for 2021, family fun activities and focal gathering hubs have been eliminated. Masks, distancing, handwashing, and a significant reduction in attendance will make this more of an outdoor fine art exhibit instead of the family fun excursion in the downtown parks you know and love.

Crowd sizes will be limited to 3,000 visitors a day, divided into 3 shifts. This will be a FREE ticketed event for 2021, so we need your help to make this a safe and positive experience. Please join us to make this adjusted event a reality and sign up to volunteer!

Sign up NOW for the 2021 Festival 

The Festival would not be the success it is without the many volunteers who share their talents, their time, and their passion for arts in our community.  Thank you, volunteers!

Sign up to volunteer for just a few hours or every day – either way, join the group of dedicated volunteers who often return each year because it’s rewarding and fun! The 2021 festival will be very different from past years, so your help will make all of the difference. We appreciate your help and flexibility.

As a volunteer you get:
-Proof Brewing personal hand sanitizer
-2021 Cover Art/ Capital City Bank face mask
-You can enjoy the festival for 1 shift after you have completed your volunteer shift as long as you have on a yellow wristband.

Volunteer Spotlight – Jennifer Infinger

Jennifer Infinger, long-time LeMoyne volunteer and former LeMoyne Education
Director, continues to be a major asset to LeMoyne and the Chain of Parks Art
Festival. Jennifer is responsible for the Judging/Awards aspect of the festival.
What might sound like an easy, straightforward job is actually a year-round
position requiring many hours of work. Right after one festival ends, Jennifer
begins recruiting judges for the following festival and her job does not end until
each winner has their award ribbon and check in hand.

Jennifer recruits three expert judges from surrounding areas and pairs them with
three local patron judges who serve as guides during the festival weekend.
Jennifer coordinates with these parties, develops and executes the judging
process, prepares documents, and works throughout the festival weekend to
make sure everything goes off without a hitch. Jennifer is proactive, detail-
oriented, and thorough, and she runs her program independently. Jennifer’s
efforts are a gift to Chain of Parks and LeMoyne, as she does all this great work as
a volunteer! Thank you, Jennifer!

“Tremendous gathering of artistic talent.”
