Organizers of the 17th Street Festival on September 22 are looking for fun, friendly, hard-working people to spend the day volunteering at the third annual festival.

Volunteers are needed in many areas, including: assist vendors & artists, help out in Kids Zone, sell merchandise, keep the festival & surrounding area clean and green, and ensure a safe and secure environment. Organizers say hey “welcome groups and singles of any age and will find a “job” that fits your personality & abilities. T-shirts & food and a great time provided!”

You can sign up online.
