Call for Volunteers

Volunteers are critical to the festival's success and provide hospitality support to participating artists and festival goers. All you need is enthusiasm for street art, our downtown streets and the diverse audience of festival goers. All volunteers will receive a coveted Downtown Mpls Street Art Festival signature t-shirt.
