Top 10 Reasons!

[teaser]There isn’t a person that’s ever attended the Idaho Summer Fest, (either as a participant, volunteer or “spectacle viewer”), that didn’t come away with a plethora of reasons why being involved in the Festival is just plain cool. Frankly, it would be easy to give you hundreds of reasons why you need to be involved this year, but we’ll just give you 10 for now…[/teaser]

Community Service

If you are a scout, a student, or a service organization you can provide community service hours at the Festival. If the Judge ordered you to perform community service? Well, we probably have “something” (possibly a job moving heavy objects) for you do! ;)[/div]

The Ultimate Meetup

If you thought a local Tweetup was a good time, you ain’t seen nothin’ until you’ve done it at a Summer dance and music festival. So, grab your iPhone or Android and send out a tweet or a +1. Or, just grab your neighbor because the Summer Fest is the ultimate place to meet, greet and work with your community.[/div]

Networking Opportunities

Want to meet movers and shakers? Get to know those on the go? Well, over 1000 people get involved in making the Festival come to life each year, and they are the creme-d-la-creme of the community. There’s no better place to network/hobnob/rub elbows/bust a move/yeehaw then at Summer Fest.[/div]

Cultural Exchange

World views change when world’s collide… Whether you are a world traveler, or you’ve never left Rexburg, it matters not when you are meeting someone from China, Israel or New Zealand for the first time. You become an ambassador for Rexburg, for Idaho, and for America. Your smile, warmth, curiosity and care will impact another living thousands of miles away… struggling to overcome language barriers to communicate common interests is an incredibly intense and powerful experience.[/div]

Education Opportunity

It has been said that there is no greater teacher then travel… that’s only partly true. Learning comes with interaction and discovery. The Festival brings vastly divergent cultures together and provides us all the opportunity to learn. Children, often called linguistic geniuses, (or sponges), have their lives changed when they come face to face with someone of a different language — even if but for a moment.[/div]

Discover New Friends

Friends happen. Think about it… when did you ever just set out to find a new one? Sharing a bit of dust and sweat… directing traffic… asking for an autograph… getting snatched up out of a crowd to Kolo with a dozen Serbs can be the start of a friendship that lasts a lifetime. [/div]

Discover New Joint Venture Parnters

The bonds of music and dance are interesting and deep. Meeting business people working to make the Idaho Summer Fest come alive could open doors for your business. Better yet, you never know… maybe one of the participant’s from China, New Zealand or even Washington, D.C., could be your next joint venture partner.[/div]

Once in a Lifetime Experience

Ok, for some of us this will be our 27th “once in a lifetime experience” with a music festival in Rexburg. Ask any “old timer” and they will all tell you that every Festival was special. However, this year’s Summer Fest will be significantly different; there will still be a bit of “folk” in the Festival, but it will be much more geared to Rexburg’s younger majority… Don’t miss a single event![/div]

Fall In Love

It’s said that music makes the heart grow fonder… well, hundreds of musicians from the four corners are a world of lovin’ opportunity. You may meet, dance and sing with that boy or girl will be “the one.” Or, you just may do as thousands do every year when the Festival comes to Idaho… fall in love with Idaho’s treasure — Idaho Summer Fest[/div]
