PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — The annual ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival is seeking volunteers.

The two-day outdoor food and arts festival in northern Palm Beach County features nearly 300 artists and activities for the entire family.

The festival, which will return to Palm Beach Gardens this year after two decades in Jupiter, requires hundreds of volunteers to help put it on annually.

It will be held at the Gardens North County District Park on 117th Court North, featuring live entertainment, a youth art gallery and a juried exhibition of fine art.

"This year, we are looking for volunteers to make this 36th edition of ArtiGras safe and enjoyable for all those who attend," said Noel Martinez, president and CEO of the Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce, which produces the festival. "Volunteers are the backbone of ArtiGras, and with our new location in Palm Beach Gardens, we are looking to our volunteers to help us make this transition to a new venue seamless."

Help is needed in the following areas:

  • ArtiKids Zone
  • Parking/Transportation
  • Artist Relations
  • Site Operations
  • Volunteer Committee
  • Youth Art Competition Committee
  • Information booths and merchandising

Masks will be provided for volunteers, and sanitizing stations will be set up throughout the festival.

Volunteers will receive a free T-shirt, free food, beverages and admission to Artigras before or after their shifts. Students can also receive community service hours.

In its 36th year, ArtiGras falls on Valentine's Day weekend, Feb. 13 and 14.
