Help make Parktacular GREAT!
If you have enjoyed the festival in the past, or if you have ideas for improvements, we encourage you to volunteer on our Parktacular Board of Directors/Planning Committee. Meetings are monthly, new ideas are encouraged, and roles on the committee are autonomous. The Festival is planned and run entirely by volunteers, we need more people to divide the work to achieve work/life/volunteer balance. And the bottom line, we have fun!
