We are a volunteer-operated nonprofit organization (501-C3). The helping hands and financial support of other Lincoln and Route 66 fans is very much needed to make this event possible every year. Please join us as we prepare our eleventh Festival!

Examples of organizational volunteer jobs needed include organizers, marketing assistance, fundraising assistance, researchers, and database support. “Day of” event volunteers include door monitors/ushers, street guides, tour “runners” and general helpers as needed.

Contributions in any amount are greatly appreciated. Gifts of $25 or more make you an Individual Member that includes invitations for meetings and special events, advance info on events planned, and a listing in our program.


Please complete the form below to participate in the festival. Click on the Volunteer button, and let us know in the message space how you can help. Someone from our Board of Directors will get back with you as soon as possible.

We are grateful for the generous support we receive from our supporters and sponsors: organizations, businesses and individuals.  In conjunction with the festival, we publish an ad book each year that also contains scheduling and other event related information.  If you would like information on becoming a supporter, sponsor, exhibitor, program advertiser or vendor, complete the volunteer sign-up above.
