Oswego, NY (May 10, 2016) – For the 29th consecutive year, Oswego Harborfest will bring thousands of festival goers to the City of Oswego from Thursday, July 28 through Sunday, July 31. As always, the success of such a large annual tradition relies not only upon the talent, entertainment, food, and other vendors, but also the invaluable contributions of countless volunteers. Their efforts are an integral part of the summer festival.
Once again, Oswego Harborfest is seeking out volunteers to provide assistance with a variety of important responsibilities. Some of the opportunities that are available to volunteers are helping set up and take down operations, selling raffle tickets, helping artists, providing information to festival goers, helping in the office, parking attendant and crew, shuttle host and aide, and park management. There is even a “floater” position, for those who prefer to do a little bit of everything.
Volunteers must complete the registration form, and training programs are scheduled for 6 p.m. on Wednesday, July 20th and Thursday, July 21st. Applications are here or can be picked up in person at the McCrobie Building, 41 Lake Street.
Harborfest is one of the few admission-free music festivals in the country. It was founded with the mission of creating nationally recognized festivals and events that attract and engage a broad and diverse audience, celebrate and build community, and advance economic development in Oswego, New York. It would not be possible to continue the event without the massive continued support received from the City of Oswego, businesses, organizations, government entities, and individuals and family members.
