My tasks in festival coordination included:
+ Contacting all restaurants and often times working with them in person to fill out food and safety regulation forms for the city.
+ Working with the Boston Circus Guild fire throwers and the Somerville Fire Department on fire safety regulations.
+ Hiring CEMI to conduct lighting and working with them to create a lighting plan.
+ Bringing in outside talent from belly dancers, bollywood dancers and keytar playing bears. Making sure they had the right sound equipment and electricity.
+ Continuously communicating with all parties above to make sure the festival happened with little issue.
+ Organize a press release for the event, talk to press and give interviews about the event.
