Berthoud Day 2017 - Volunteer Opportunities 
Berthoud Day is right around the corner and we are getting super excited. Amazingly, this is the 63rd year.  Imagine how many people have been involved in making this a great event and helping it grow each and every year.

There are a few vendor spaces open.  But they will probably be all sold out this week.  Please don't wait and miss out.

Now is the time to sign up to volunteer. We guarantee a good time and great opportunities to make new connections, with volunteers and event goers alike.

Grab you partner, friends, kids, or anyone you can think of and sign-up for multiple slots.

Please share this link with anyone that you think might be interested in having fun while helping out.  Volunteer Sign-Up 
2017 Berthoud Sunfest
Berthoud Sunfest follows Berthoud Day two weeks later.  We change locations as this event is held in our beautiful Fickel Park located on Mountain Avenue between 6th and 7th Streets.

We hang over 100 quilts on clothes lines that we anchor to the trees in the park.  There will also be many incredible art vendors there as well.

If you are an artist and would like to have a booth at this event, we'd invite you to get signed up now.

If you would like to have your quilt displayed in the park, please get signed up.  For the first 150 quilts signed up, you have a chance to win a Sew Pink Edition – Bernette Sewing Machine donated by The Presser Foot or a Baby Locke sewing machine donated by Quality Sewing. Both are located in Longmont.

There will lots of other events happening in Berthoud on Saturday, June 17.  For all of the latest details, please check out our website at www.BerthoudSunfest.com.
