What kind of shifts are available?
Syttende Mai Festival needs hundreds of volunteers to help the event run smoothly. There are lots of shifts for individuals, and opportunities for groups to volunteer together. Each event within the festival has different shift requirements.
We have a group with a lot of young people, what can we do?
Volunteers range in age from 13 and on up. Some groups of young people work with a parent or group leader. We have a young volunteer group who deliver ice to our food vendors throughout the three-day festival.
How many hours is a typical shift?
