Volunteers are at the heart of Luminaria’s success!

We have an active annual community engagement calendar that includes: Contemporary Art Month, San Antonio Book Festival, King William Fair, Texas Folk Life Festival, Pride Festival, World Heritage Festival, Chalk it Up, Diwali Festival, and Día de los Muertos.

Sign up to staff our Contemporary Arts Festival the night of Saturday, November 9. Help visitors navigate the vast network of artistic programs as a Festival Guide or collect audience feedback as a Survey Specialist. If you’re not a night owl, we also need volunteers on Sunday, November 10 for the Community Arts Day at Hemisfair and the Closing Performance at Mission San José.

Is there another way you want to get involved with Luminaria? Tell us about your arts-related or event assistance background. We seek to appoint groups and individuals who can take on specific roles.

Volunteers must be 16 years or older. Let us know if you are a student or need community hours recorded, and we will provide documentation.

    Grow The Arts In San Antonio

    Luminaria is calling on individuals, businesses, and organizations to propel the arts in our community by sponsoring:

    • a 2020 Annual Artist Award grant;
    • the 2020 Contemporary Arts Festival; and
    • our production and administrative operations.

    We want to grow our capacity to award more artists annually, maintain the high production level of our annual festival, and reward the folks behind the scenes that make it all happen. Every dollar the Luminaria Artist Foundation receives supports San Antonio and Bexar County artists, the cultural fabric of this city, and prudent administrative management.

    Help us cultivate creativity. Contact Kathy Armstrong, Executive Director, and become a sponsor today.
