As a non-profit community service provider, we consistently have to think creatively about generating needed support for our programs and operations at the same time that we design and place those services around Lincoln. One benefit of the Arts Festival is the underwriting it generates for the Arts Council. The key to this event being a successful benefit is the support we receive from festival sponsors. For more information, please contact Lori McAlister at lori@artscene.org, or call 402-434-2787.


Holding an event with 15,000 people attending is not a small feat. We’d love to have your help. We can match you interests with a variety of volunteer opportunities that include setup and tear down, artist and sponsor hospitality, children’s activity assistant, raffle ticket seller, and general hosts for the Festival.  Call our office at 434-2787, or contact VolunteerLAF@gmail.com if you're interested.  Thanks!
