Each year the Huntington Summer Arts Festival draws more than 80,000 visitors during the course of the festival; our volunteers are an integral part of making these free performances enjoyable to all who attend.

Volunteers also have a chance to meet some of our world-class talent, work with our backstage crew and enjoy the live outdoor performances. So if you love music, theater and dance, join us as a volunteer. All ages are welcome.
