Volunteers Needed:

While country booths are the main focus, there are many other ways you can support this event. We need volunteers to be our "Customs Agents" and our "Ambassadors", and to help set-up and clean up. We need to borrow tables and pop up tents. Working together we can make this an amazing event.

Please take a quick peek at the signup genius to see if there is anything you are able to help with: Festival link to SignUpGenius.



Would you like to be an event sponsor? Student/Family sponsorships 
are $50. Please purchase through the Future Fund store: Festival campaign site on Future Fund.

All sponsorship donations are tax deductible and help the PTA provide meaningful programs for our children. Contact Larisa Somsel at if you have questions.

Lastly, if you are unable to support by volunteering it would mean the world to us to see you and your families enjoying the event so please mark your calendars for a family fun afternoon!  Come explore our diversity through country booths, food samples, crafts, music, and more!
