The Sweet Pea Festival is Looking for Volunteers
The Sweet Pea Festival will be here before you know it! The festival will be hitting Lindley Park Aug. 5, 6 and 7. It wouldn’t be able to happen without all of the amazing volunteers who have dedicated their time to ensure the event’s success over the years.
This year is no different. The Sweet Pea Festival is approaching quickly, and they need more volunteers. The festival is one of the premier annual events in Bozeman, and they need all the help they can get to make sure this year’s event is a success. According to their website, sweetpeafestival.org;
Volunteers who give three or more hours of their time to the Festival will receive a free 3-day admission band to attend the Festival. Only volunteers giving less than three hours are asked to purchase their own band in support of the Festival.
Sweet Pea’s mission is to promote and cultivate the arts. If a net gain is realized from a Festival it is given back to the community in the form of grants for the arts and art education, special projects, and park improvements. Due to increasing operational costs, Sweet Pea has not realized a net gain in the recent past. Unfortunately, giving free admission to every volunteer, regardless of time volunteered would be further detrimental to the ability for Sweet Pea to support the arts community.
So, not only do you get to help out an event that is part of the fabric of Bozeman, you also get a 3-day admission if you can dedicate three or more hours of your time. For information on volunteering at this year’s Sweet Pea Festival, click here.
