Do you want to be a part of the Festival? Volunteers are a vital part of the Des Moines Arts Festival every year and we could not put on an award-winning Festival of this magnitude without YOUR help! We have a variety of different jobs and shifts to choose from whether you are looking for an opportunity for just yourself or a group of people.
All volunteers will receive a volunteer t-shirt to wear during their shift(s) and snacks during their shifts.
Think of a family member, friend or group who can join you. Volunteering is always more fun when you are able to do it with people you already know!
No-shows can really cause great difficulties from the planning to the execution stages of the Festival weekend. We ask that you be able to report on time and remain on task for the duration of your shift(s).
All volunteers must be at least 16 years old when they report for their volunteer shift.
ARAG (www.ARAGgroup.com), whose North American operations are based in Des Moines, IA, is a global provider of legal solutions. The company has an international premium base of almost $2 billion and it protects 15.5 million individuals and their families – worldwide. ARAG offers comprehensive legal plans that provide a smart and trusted path for resolving legal issues. This enables people to protect their families, finances and futures.
ARAG was founded more than 75 years ago by Heinrich Faßbender, an attorney and entrepreneur in Düsseldorf, Germany. He believed everyone should be able to assert their legal rights and created an insurance solution that offered the means to obtain justice, regardless of financial status. ARAG began as legal protection for car drivers and has grown to offer legal protection for all situations in life. After three generations, the company is still owned and operated by the founding family.
In 1989, ARAG purchased a division of Midwest Mutual Insurance Company and expanded business into North America where it provides legal solutions to consumers throughout the United States.
