We Need Your Help!

Festival of Trees would not be possible without the thousands of volunteers that take part every year. Each and every volunteer is needed to make a successful Festival! All of our volunteers are vital to the success of Festival of Trees as well as major assets to our not-for-profit organization. Volunteers make it possible for Quad City Arts to raise much-needed funding for quality arts programming for the residents of six counties in eastern Iowa and western Illinois. Volunteering is a wonderful way to give back to your community, learn job skills, and network with professionals.


Volunteers must be at least 16 years old, unless accompanied by proper adult supervision.

The Benefits of Volunteering:

► Complimentary General Admission ticket for every shift worked

► Have fun volunteering as a family

► Improve inter-office relations by volunteering with your coworkers
► Network with business professionals

► Learn a new skill, or improve existing skills
► Support the arts in the community

► Gain self-confidence and improve social skills

► Make lifelong friends and memories!
