We have live, local performers entertaining us throughout each day of the festival. Help greet our performers, check them in, and escort them to the stage when it is their time to shine!
Guest Services/Office Help
Join our guest services team to provide excellent customer service during festival hours. Or assist our office staff with various tasks to support the individual department functions. These opportunities are essential for the smooth operation of the entire event.
Volunteer Coordination
Work with volunteers in different departments to ensure they are properly trained and prepared for their volunteer service. Create a personal link with volunteers to ensure they have a fun and engaging volunteer experience.
Setup & Tear Down
The most important work of the entire event! Help our team create the holiday magic during set up and finish strong with a quick and efficient tear down. More hands make light work. This is a perfect volunteer opportunity for large groups!
