Clarksville, TN – The award-winning Rivers and Spires Festival is a community driven event that is organized by hundreds of dedicated volunteers each year. But, in order to be successful, we need your support!
With over 600 volunteer positions to fill, there are still plenty of opportunities to get involved. If interested in volunteering, you can sign up and learn more information at the pre-Festival meeting on April 9th at 5:00pm on the third level of the Capital Bank Building, 25 Jefferson Street.
If it were not for the hard work of our set-up crews, the Festival would not be possible! The set-up volunteers assist with everything from placing tents, tables and chairs to helping with stage and entertainment prep. These volunteers should be in good physical condition and able to lift at least 30 pounds.
Set-up times are morning hours on Thursday, April 16th and Friday, April 17th.
Family Fun Zone
One of the elements that makes Rivers and Spires so fabulous is the free Family Fun Zone. This area is full of dedicated individuals who not only love the Festival, but love children. Volunteers have the opportunity to help children of all ages on inflatables, interactive games and assist children’s entertainers when necessary.
Clarksville-Montgomery County School System youth organizations and church groups also have to chance to volunteer and earn credit for their service hours.
For those who may love to talk and interact with others, the Information Booth is a great place to be. Volunteers in this area will answer questions on the Festival and assist visitors with directions and schedule information. The hours of the Information Booth are scheduled in two-hour minimum blocks, and the Information Booth is open during Festival hours.
Volunteers may sit at the booth, and no lifting or physical activity is required.
Lots of Opportunity
We hope everyone in our community will be a part of these volunteer opportunities. And, each volunteer walks away with a coveted Rivers and Spires original t-shirt, so what’s not to love! Those interested in volunteering can log onto riversandspires.com/applications and see the specific Festival listings, including job descriptions, time slots available and contact information.
