Please Join our Volunteer Team
Art in the Pearl couldn’t happen without the help of our dedicated, community-minded, and fun volunteers!

As a volunteer, you’ll be a part of Portland’s vibrant art scene and experience one of the nation’s best Fine Arts & Crafts events. You’ll get to peek behind the curtain and work alongside the artists – learning about them, their art and discovering what the art festival life is all about. We encourage you to bring friends, family and/or co-workers to make the experience even more fun!

Additional perks include a commemorative t-shirt, complimentary drinks & snacks.

Our 3-day event needs 100 or more volunteers and we hope that you’ll be one of them.
See below for details and SIGN UP today!
