Project North organizers looking for more volunteers

Project North, a three-day music, arts and environmental festival coming to Rhinelander on Sept. 26-28, is looking for volunteer help.

With over 30 bands now in the music lineup, organizers are looking for assistance in the form of bartenders, security, green team and more.

"Volunteering at Project North for three hours will get you free admission for the day, while volunteering for six hours will get you free admission for the entire weekend,"organizers said in a press release. "Volunteers can sign up at Those who have already purchased a ticket will be reimbursed should they decide to volunteer."

"Project North is dedicated to facilitating a community environment for the long weekend," music coordinator Evan Verploegh said. "Having a committed volunteer crew will make the vision that much easier to attain in our first year of the festival."

For those interested in volunteering at Project North, three informational sessions will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at ArtStart Rhinelander. Sessions will be held at 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., with light refreshments served at each.

Anyone who has already signed up to volunteer is asked to attend a volunteer orientation event from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24 at WXPR in Rhinelander.

Details about volunteer shifts will be discussed at the meeting and light refreshments will be served.

Project North is a multi-faceted festival focusing on music, art, and sustainability. The Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce, WXPR, ArtStart, and Nicolet College, in collaboration with many community volunteers and supporters, have joined together to create the festival.

Project North will feature: more than 15 live music performances on four stages at ArtStart, WXPR, the Masonic Lodge, and a temporary-grand stage on King Street; an eco-village with sustainability speakers, products, and vendors; sustainable food trucks and a craft beer wagon on King Street; unique art installations and experiences throughout Brown, Davenport, and King streets; The Northern National Art Competition held at Nicolet College; School Of The Arts Legacy Program classes at UWSP-Treehaven; and a children's activity tent at the Rhinelander District Library, sponsored by the GFWC Rhinelander Woman's Club.

This event is made possible through funding from the Northern Arts Council, GFWC Rhinelander Woman's Club, the Wisconsin State Arts Board, Grow North Regional Economic Development Corporation, the Rhinelander Community Foundation, and a Joint Effort Marketing (JEM) grant from the Wisconsin Department of Tourism.
