JOB: Volunteer for Craft Lake City
For Immediate Release:
SALT LAKE CITY, March 9, 2012 – Craft Lake City’s fourth annual festival is on the horizon and is in need of volunteers. Those who give their time will be asked to sign up in the following areas: artists in set up and tear down, welcome festival-goers as they arrive, support the stage managers, offer directions at the information booth, and oversee craft creation in the kid’s area.
“Volunteers are an integral part of Craft Lake City and are vital to the success of our festival,” says Festival Director, Angela H. Brown. “Without the volunteer help from our community, CLC simply would not exist.”
"By giving just a few hours of my time to help set up or pass out information, I'm giving the artists the chance to focus their time and energy to share with the community their talents instead of worrying about festival details," said Shantel Mota-Harmon, Salt Lake City native and Craft Lake City 2011 volunteer. "Not only did I have a great time helping but I also met some great people who I now call my friends."
Craft Lake City will be held on Saturday, August 11th, with extended hours this year, from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. It is an outdoor event that is free and open to the public. Over 180 artists will showcase their truly unique, yet affordable wares. Handmade purses and bags, one-of-a-kind home decor, silk-screened paper goods, pottery, jewelry, metal and wood-work creations are just a few of the items that will be available.
This year’s festival also boasts a brand new Science and Technology area, located in the Gallivan Center’s recently built Banquet Room. Entertainment will be provided throughout the day and will include a kids crafting area, street performers and musical acts. The event is hosted by the Gallivan Center. Last year’s event welcomed close to 10,000 visitors.
