Join the team!
Volunteers are the heart and backbone of our organization.
We are so thankful to all of the groups, individuals and businesses that volunteer! We couldn’t succeed without you! Each year we need more than 9,000 volunteers to work a total of 75,000 volunteer hours. An estimated 80 volunteer committees help plan and execute Riverfest. It takes volunteers–working on committees, coming in for mailings, packaging buttons, answering phones, and working at Riverfest to make it successful. We need you!
