Volunteer at the Fourth Annual VIVA! Streets in Austin

Make the 4th Annual Viva! Streets Spectacular
Volunteer, have fun, get a free t-shirt
 
On Sunday, September 13, East 6th Street will become a playground for all ages, filled with fun, music, and neighbors at VIVA! Streets ATX. We're so excited for Austin's fourth annual open streets event, and we want you to be a part of it.
 
Please volunteer with us on September 13 between 8 AM and 8 PM and you'll get a VIVA! Streets t-shirt in addition to having lots of fun. Can't be there for the whole day? No worries-- we'll have lots to do all day long. Choose a time that's best for you!
