Volunteers

Main Street Fest would not be possible without the help of more than 500 community driven volunteers. This three day event is an ongoing tradition within the City of Grand Prairie and we hope you join us for another successful year.

Anyone or any organization is eligible, from individuals who just love festivals, music, food and the camaraderie, to civic, social organizations, church, professional and corporate groups.

Be sure to tell your family, friends, colleagues and schoolmates about this volunteer opportunity. The more the merrier!
