The 28th annual Mississippi Valley Blues Festival is less than three weeks away, but the event is still seeking volunteers.  Workers are needed for all positions during the later shifts and on Sunday July 1.

The Mississippi Valley Blues Festival could not survive without the work of its volunteers.  Those who sign up to work a 3 to 4-hour shift will receive:

•              Free Admission

•              Free Fest T-Shirt

To register, go to www.mvbs.org and click on BluesFest, then Volunteers.  That will take you to the registration page.

Or call the MVBS office at 563-322-5837.

The Mississippi Valley Blues Festival is produced by the non-profit Mississippi Valley Blues Society.  The 2012 lineup features the usual mix of up-and-coming blues stars as well as legends, with 24 acts on two stages over the weekend of June 29-July 1 in Davenport’s LeClaire Park.
