Volunteer Information
The 2017 Louisiana Peach Festival will be here before we know it. We would like to invite you to become part of the single largest event in our community by joining our Volunteer Program.


Take the Company Challenge!
Businesses may have staff wear company shirts, or the #LaPeachFest shirt. This is an opportunity to spotlight your business or organization while serving your parish. Over the course of the weekend, approximately 23,000 people are expected to be in Lincoln Parish, many of them from out of town or out of state. Help us make sure they all enjoy our community. This event has an economic impact of over $2 million to Lincoln Parish.
• Businesses with three employees volunteering will receive one free poster.
• Businesses with five employees volunteering will receive a free poster, five lemonade cards from Raising Canes and five free lunch passes from Northern Louisiana Medical Center.
• Businesses with three are more employees signing up will have a sign placed in front of that business that reads, “Peach Festival Volunteer Works Here.” ( See below)
• The business with employees who work the most hours will win a free luncheon with Executive Chef Keelan Burke from Northern Louisiana Medical Center for up to 25 people.
Volunteering is an excellent way to give back to our community - plus it's just plain fun to visit with folks you haven't seen in a while. The Peach Festival is the perfect opportunity to get your family or your staff to volunteer together in a community-wide event. Our volunteer program partners you with the festival staff and other volunteers to become part of a team that brings the festival to life. The 2017 festival dates are June 23 & 24. There is plenty to do, both behind the scenes, as we get ready for the festival and during the event. Volunteer shifts may vary between two and three hours (depending on date, venue, and staffing needs). Each volunteer will receive a special volunteer t-shirt and a weekend pass. During Peach Fest, there will be a volunteer tent that will be stocked with cool water, food, and refreshments for our volunteers staff.
