Arab Fest – Volunteers Needed

Dear friends of Indiana Center for Middle East Peace,

We are so excited as we prepare for our second annual ArabFest - BIGGER AND BETTER THIS YEAR - in just three short weeks from this weekend, Saturday, June 4 (12-10pm), and Sunday, June 5 (12-7pm), Headwaters Park (Rothschild Pavilion), downtown Fort Wayne.



The Fest will feature Debka dance, Arab music, a souq (market), henna, children's booth, displays, and of course, plenty of Arab food, sweets, and treats. Camel rides on Saturday only.

Friends, this is a tremendous undertaking.  Last year we estimated we had 2400 attendees over the weekend (from four states) and so WE COUNT ON VOLUNTEERS to help us with a number of tasks:

Friday, June 3, 12-4pm

  • Set-up - tents, tables and chairs, booths, flags, displays, etc.

Saturday, June 4 (12-10pm) - Sunday, June 5 (12-7pm) --- 2-3 hour shifts on either/both days

  • Food table (prepare food plates), selling coffee/tea, selling water/soft drinks, selling baklava
  • Welcome booths (as people enter)
  • Selling tickets (people buy tickets - we're accepting tickets only for food, services, etc.)

Sunday, June 5 (7-9pm)

  • Tear down and clean-up

Please let me know as soon as you are able if you are able to lend a hand for one or both days over the weekend, and/or if you're able to help us set up or tear down/clean up on Friday afternoon or Sunday night.

Thank you, friends.  We look forward to seeing you sometime during the weekend of June 4-5.  Make sure you come by and say "hi" to me so we can catch up with each other.
