It takes as many as 300 volunteers to put on the festivals and events.

Our community festivals would never happen without the people who donate their time. It's great fun and you get to meet new people along the way. Come share your skills and learn new ones.

We depend on our volunteers to make the festivals and events a success. Your presence and prompt arrival are counted on for the days and times you are scheduled to volunteer. If your schedule must change please contact us immediately.

Volunteers are people who know how to have a good time and enjoy giving back something to their community.
