"The backbone of our success is the hard work of good people like you," says Kevin Stone, Executive Director of Red River Revel.

Community volunteers play an integral role in facilitating the festival for 180,000+ Revelers who attend each year. Volunteers annually contribute tens of thousands of man-hours and help make us one of the top 100 Arts festivals in the country.

Individual and corporate team volunteers are needed to fulfill the following areas: Coupon Sales, Admissions, and Beer Sales.

The Revel needs over 700 volunteers over the course of the eight-day event. Volunteer shifts are typically 3-4 hours in length and volunteers are welcome to work one or more shifts throughout the week.

Student Volunteers
The Red River Revel considers its Arts Education programs as the #1 reason that the festival will celebrate its 38th anniversary this year. This is largely due to the generosity of thousands of middle and high school students dedicating their time after school and on weekends helping our little Revelers with the many activities in the Children’s Area.

If your students would like to volunteer for this year’s Red River Revel, please start by choosing where and when your students would like to volunteer. We are taking volunteers for:

Face Painting
Do your students have an artistic side? Sign them up to paint the faces of our younger guests. Students will use a face paint stamp as an outline, than they will fill in with the young Reveler’s color choices.

Hands-On Activities
Your students will be assigned to one of four areas where they will assist our Chairmen in conducting various activities in the Children’s Area. Your students may be assigned to Creation Station, where they will assist our young Revelers in completing a hands-on, take home art project; a Mock Geological Dig; Sand Art; or the Brookshire’s Mini Grocery Store.

Please remember that all volunteers must be at least 12 years of age to sign up. Service hour forms can be filled out online.
