​Fresh off a blockbuster 60th Anniversary Celebration in 2016, organizers of the 61st Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival are laying the groundwork for the next edition of the landmark local arts event, hunting for dedicated volunteers that are critical to the event’s success. The 61st MVFAF is set for  the event, set for Sept. 16-17 in Old Mill Park.

“Just as we need air to breathe, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival needs volunteers to make this milestone event a huge success,” says Erma Murphy, the festival artist liaison. “The long and rich history of this event is a tribute to the fabulous community of people who are resolved to squeeze every last drop of pleasure and enjoyment out of life in and around this extraordinary place we all call home. This event is all about community and continuity and we hope very much you share our pride in this festival.”

​Prospective volunteers can visit Volunteer Local to review the positions available, select the date, time and area that interests you. 

Festival organizers say that approximately 90 percent of the slots are filled by repeat volunteers, so new volunteers should sign up soon. If you have any questions about the Festival or the process of volunteering, please call Phil Garratt, Volunteer Coordinator, at 415-505-6564 or e-mail him at philbrit@aol.com or  volunteers@mvfaf.org.
