Partnership / Gate Groups

Each year, Paint Creek Center for the Arts partners with local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations to manage the entrance gates at the Arts & Apples Festival®. A percentage of gate revenue will be disbursed among gate organizations (typically amounting to $1,500 -$1,700 benefiting each gate group’s designated organization). In 2021, gate workers will have the critical duties of welcoming festival patrons, relaying any Covid-specific requirements, and the delicate mission of soliciting donations.

Sadly, the 2020 Festival was cancelled due to COVID-19. Gate Groups that had confirmed participation for 2020 should email [email protected] with any questions or concerns.

Volunteer Requirements:

If your organization is selected you will need to have a designated, trained adult gate leader at the Festival during all shifts. You will also need a minimum of 5 adults at your gate at each shift. Volunteers 18 and under will not count towards your 5 adults. You may have persons ages 11-17 with a parent or guardian present, however, only working adults are counted as a filled volunteer spot.
