Benefits of Volunteering
As a non-profit organization we are unable to offer cash payments to performers. However, in exchange for their time and talent, Art Fair performers will receive the following benefits:

•The opportunity to increase recognition with hundreds of thousands of art enthusiasts.
•The opportunity to sell recordings, videos, and promotional materials at one of the largest outdoor events in the Midwest.
•Recognition in the official guide to Art Fair on the Square.
•Coupons for free food and drink on the day of performance for each performer.

Performance Location
MMoCA schedules entertainment at two live stages and one performance area located around Capitol Square. Slots are 60 minutes long with 30 minute breaks between sets for set-up and tear down.

All accepted performers will be assigned a designated stage area, and set up/start/end times. In light of permit requirements and safety of all involved, MMoCA can only allow performances to take place in approved areas.

Basic amplification is provided at each stage. Accepted performers will receive further information about the sound equipment available at their assigned performance location in June.
