We need YOU!

Do you enjoy being around art and artists? You can participate, too! Besides our sponsors, it takes a small army of volunteers keep this show on the road.

If you'd like to volunteer to help organize future Lunenburg Arts Fest weekends

As this is a major source of income for the Lunenburg Art Gallery Society (LAGS), volunteers are a crucial part of achieving our funding goals.


Volunteers carry out various tasks. Most take a few hours during the event or within days before or after it. We also need volunteers for the organizing committee to help plan the event. Being on the committee is a broader role exposing you to all of the aspects of LAF. It can be very rewarding.

We need Team Members before and during Lunenburg Arts Fest. If you are able to give any time at all, please contact us at
