Volunteer applications now being accepted for Western Days
Volunteers wanting to help with the 2017 Lewisville Western Days, September 29-30, can now sign up online.
The success of Western Days is largely dependent on people working behind the scenes to ensure a positive festival experience for everyone who attends. The Western Days volunteer force is excellent, and there always is room for more.
Volunteers are needed to fill a variety of roles at the event, ranging from logistics and set up, to working the festival gates and even assisting with festival attractions such as the World Tamale Eating Championship.
Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt from the event, as well as complimentary tickets to the festival for both days. There are several shifts and tasks available to accommodate practically any schedule or skill set.
To find the online application, go to LewisvilleWesternDays.com and click on the “volunteer” tab. You will be redirected to the signup.com page where you can enter your email address to view the available times and duties.
This year’s Western Days event will feature Turnpike Troubadours and Randy Rogers Band as headlining musical acts, an expanded Western Village featuring the Tribal Traditions Dance Troupe, the Kid Kountry Playground presented by Castle Hills, a mechanical bull, a working blacksmith, Huffines Auto Dealerships Lewisville Cattle Drive Parade, Castle Hills Culinary Corner, an art gallery exhibit at Medical City Lewisville Grand Theater, and many more exciting, family-friendly activities.
