Arizona Highland Celtic Festival - July 18 & 19, 2015 - Foxglenn Park
Come be a part of the fun and share your experience and knowledge by participating in the educational volunteer opportunities at this amazing summertime event! For the past several years the annual Arizona Highland Celtic Festival event has featured an educational component in a tented area called the “Plants of Celtic Regions”. Plants and trees are graciously donated for the festival weekend by Viola’s Flower Garden and placards have been created that connect each plant and tree to various Celtic regions, stories, and legends. This year our goal is to feature energetic CMGA volunteers who can enhance and engage festival attendees through their knowledge and personal experience with the various plants as well as talk about gardening in Northern Arizona. Opportunities are also available for CMGA volunteers to provide 45-minute presentations on Celtic lore and medicine relative to herbal remedies, concoctions, secrets and myths. Your audience in the tent and for presentations will range from youngsters to well-seasoned festival attendees so you can use your imagination, experience and have fun!
Here are the facts:
This volunteer opportunity has been approved by the CMGA.
By volunteering for a shift at the Arizona Highland Celtic Festival you will receive a festival t-shirt, name tag, and free admission to the festival for Saturday and Sunday!
