Now in our sixth year, the annual Sanford Arts & Vine Festival at the Mann Center is a much-anticipated community celebration.  It’s a great opportunity for residents and guests to embrace our vibrant arts, culinary and entertainment communities.

With a new downtown location, 1-day format and greater emphasis on live music, the festival is poised for our best year yet!

This year, our proceeds will go to our festival’s host non-profit organization, Mann Center of North Carolina. Funds will be used as part of Mann’s $30,000 renovation and upgrades project for the Pomeranz Auditorium.

Of course, dearly loved community events like the Arts & Vine Festival can’t operate seamlessly without the volunteer help of our residents and patrons.

Please take a look at our list of volunteer opportunities. As our way of thanking you for your assistance, all volunteers are admitted to the full event for free.

To sign up, simply click here and choose the way in which you would like to serve the festival.  A member of our committee will follow up to help coordinate your participation.

Do you have questions, or would like to learn more about the volunteer options available to you?  No problem!  Please contact us at volunteer@sanfordartsandvine.com and a member of our team will follow up with you.

Thank you!
