Volunteer Committee

Our committees are led by volunteers that have a passion for what they do. Some committees work all year long while others only work the week of the festival but all are essential and valued.

People from all walks of life and all ages give countless hours to make the annual festival a success and the love for the festival is passed on from generation to generation. We cherish our faithful volunteers that have joined us year after year but we also welcome new volunteers that will help continue the tradition. We all share the love of the arts and crafts that have been part of Fairhope, the Eastern Shore and the surrounding community.

That love and dedication allowed the Fairhope Arts and Crafts to grow from a small local festival into a festival that attracts artists and visitors from all over the nation. It has ranked in the top 25 of all festivals in the nation over the last decade.
