Primarily run by volunteers, the Abbot Kinney Festival celebrates the vibrant creativity of Venice, California. The gift of your time helps to ensure the continuing success of our FREE community event. Thanks in advance for sharing your time, energy, skills, enthusiasm and commitment!

Volunteers are needed before and during the event to help set up and tear down areas such as KidsQuad; assist staff with directing exhibitors and merchants; distribute festival merchandise; answer questions for attendees; check in volunteers, performers, and exhibitors; and perform many other integral jobs.

We begin our volunteer coordination in August.
