As you know, our festival has been going under some changes the last few years, and we are still getting better and better every year! This festival is 100 percent community driven and has a LOT of volunteer hours put in, so that we can have a great experience celebrating the heritage of our area.
However, as time goes on, we are in desperate need of help from more of the community. Right now, there are about 12 of us making the entire festival what you see, hear and taste and most of the members are doing multiple things at once. We need your help Seneca County! We are looking for help with multiple areas which can be done by one person, or a group of friends or coworkers! We have included a small guideline of what would need to be done, but the most important thing to remember is that YOU WILL NOT BE ALONE. You will have the guidance and assistance of the Festival committee and board members. If you have any questions, or would like to step up, please send us a message on Facebook, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
