Festival Volunteers Needed!

We need volunteers for the 2010 Festival on May 22, 2010!

This year’s festival is planned to be a celebration of the downtown rooftops with a street level festival held on West Peachtree Place co-sponsored by Social Resto and the 2nd Annual Scavenger Hunt.

The food, music, and artists will definitely have a Mediterranean influence.

The rooftop tour will include a lounge area with DJ/artist/or chef on each roof, historical information about the buildings and surrounding area, as well as provide architectural and skyscraper buffs the opportunity to access some the of best views in the city.

The Hunt will also highlight historical sites and public art works in the downtown area.

Volunteers are needed ASAP to help with ideas, planning, permit applications, advertising/twittering/facebooking, contacts with potential sponsors/donors, contacts with downtown residential and commercial buildings with roof access, contacts with artists/DJs/chefs to work each rooftop, and general ‘let’s do it!” enthusiasm.

To Volunteer

Contact Robyn Jackson at atlrobyn@hotmail.com to help make the 2010 Festival a great success.
