Fine Arts Building
At the Itasca County Fair
Join us as the Grand Rapids Players host the Fine Arts event at this year's Itasca County Fair. Each year for the past 12 years the Grand Rapids Players has hosted this 5-day event. We receive and display artwork from artists of all ages, from the surrounding area. We facilitate the judging of the artwork, greet the visitors, and release the artwork at the end of the week. All the while, we have the great opportunity to promote our organization, recruit volunteers and board participation, as well as any upcoming events. We also invite other arts organizations to display their programs! It's alot of fun to be engaged with all the folks who come through the building. If you would like to volunteer to be a part of this event, we are looking for volunteers! When you sign up for a 4-hour shift, you get to drive your vehicle right up to the back door and part - for free! You can leave your car parked there, while you visit the fairgrounds either before or after your shift.
There are 3 different types of opportunities.
1. Tuesday from 4-8 and/or Wednesday from 8-11 you can help receive, tag and display entries.
2. On Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, you can host the building (no stress) choosing from these shifts - 10-2, 2-5:30 and 5:30-9.
3. Sunday from 4:00-7:ish to release the entries and award premium (checks) to folks who won ribbons. You are welcome to partner up, if you'd like. That way, one of you can make a Fair Food run!
