Volunteer at Summerfest!

Each year at Summerfest we use hundreds of volunteers. Without our wonderful volunteers, our biggest fundraiser of the year would not be possible!

Shifts are for 3 hours at a time, and you are welcome to sign up for as many as you'd like! All volunteers will get an official Summerfest t-shirt.

We are using a new system, so please sign up for your shifts through the following link HERE. If you have any trouble, call Stephanie at (303)674-0056
