It’s Fun to Volunteer

The Marietta Cobb Museum of Art is extremely grateful for our volunteers, both in preparation for and during the two-day event. Chalktoberfest is run by the museum’s complete staff of six people and about 300 volunteers, some of which help prepare the festival beforehand. There are about 150 volunteers for the Craft Beer Fest and 200 volunteers of all ages for the chalk festival itself.

These festival volunteers work from Thursday through Monday for the event and perform tasks such as setting locations and measurements for chalk blocks, setting up and breaking down these displays, and pouring samples at the Craft Beer Fest. Some of the volunteer work needed beforehand includes helping to host the sponsored artist reception at the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art on Friday before the festival kicks off, vendor organization, and managing information booths at the event.

Many volunteers also perform administrative duties, help with graphic design, and take event photos. Other tasks include artist hospitality during the event and assisting with children’s crafts.

We want to extend a huge thank you again to our wonderful volunteers and if you are interested in lending a helping hand to the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art in support of Chalktoberfest, please visit or e-mail our director of operations Jennifer Fox at
