Volunteering at the Festival

The 2018 Lakewood Film, Art and Book Festival is set for September28, 29 and 30, 2018!

This three-day event is a FABulous celebration of FILM, ART AND BOOKS at the McGavick Center on the campus of Clover Park Technical College. The event showcases 8 award-winning films, 38 visiting authors and stunning two-dimensional art … both artist rendered and photography. In addition, Kaihara Bonsai and Philippine Scouts displays offer beauty and educational opportunities.  Better yet, the entire event is Free to the public.

A handful of community leaders and representatives are bringing this event to Lakewood—but it takes friends like you to make it happen. This is a call for volunteers!

Funding the Festival

While the activities provided during the three-day Lakewood Film, Art and Book Festival is entirely free (unless you make optional purchases from authors or artists) it still takes funding to rent films, build the art exhibit, rent the venue and mange a myriad number of other expenses. Donations are accepted and appreciated at the snack counter and are helpful for covering those costs.

Major funding can only be raised through grants, individual and organizational donations long before the event can be launched. Regional community and business organizations will be heavily relied on to support and grow this fabulous celebration of local arts. Our festival chair persons are busy contacting these organizations to explain the benefits an event of this complexity and size bring to our community. The more the event grows the more likely it will attract out of town and even out of state visitors. They matter because they are likely to patronize our hotels, restaurants and retail businesses. Recognition of our event spreads when out-of-towners head home and discuss their experiences with friends, family and business acquaintences.
