Get involved by becoming a Volunteer or Sponsor for the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival.

Safety precautions will be implemented this year including but not limited to, hand sanitation stations; vaccination requirements for Festival volunteers; and encouragement of social distancing and face mask-wearing in artist booths




More than 300 volunteers help make this event possible each year. Your dedication helps Tephra ICA enrich community life. Festival volunteers fill a variety of roles, including but not limited to: event set-up, welcoming of guests, booth sitting for participating artists as part of the Artist Hospitality group, accepting donations as a Festival Ambassador, or helping young emerging artists create fun projects in the Family Art Park. Each task is critical to the success of the event and would not be possible without your support!

Volunteers as young as 13 years old are welcome to earn community service hours at this event.
