Returning for its seventh year, Kirkland Summerfest is the city’s premier music and arts festival. This three-day tour de force boasts dozens of live performances, outdoor entertainment venues, purveyors of fine foods, local beers and wines and interactive activities. To make sure this year’s festival goes off without a hitch, it needs help from the community.

Kirkland Summerfest is in need of volunteers.

Being a volunteer comes with its perks. One volunteer shift offers a sweet tee, entry to the beer garden (no cover charge for all weekend long with a wristband) and six drink tokens (equal to two drinks, depending on the drink of choice). Two volunteer shifts offers the same benefits as one volunteer shift with an additional 14 drink tokens (20 tokens total).

To enter the beer garden, volunteers must be over 21 with valid ID.
