Festival 2018 Volunteers

Volunteers at the Russian Winter Festival 

Volunteers make our Russian Winter Festival possible. From planning to clean-up, each step and event of the Festival operates through the help of dedicated, creative people who donate their time and talents. We have volunteer assignments to fit many interests and schedules.  Decide on the type and level of commitment you'd like to make.  The Festival is a month-long event.  The majority of volunteers opportunities occur at the Grand Finale of the Festival.  It will be this year on Saturday, February 28th 2015.

Volunteers Assignments at the Grand Finale Feb. 25:

Most shifts are 3 hours long.  It is not guaranteed that you will be placed at your desired assignment, but we will do our best. We reserve the right to change or alter assignments due to scheduling needs. All volunteers are encouraged to dress in ethnic attire. For ladies; if you do not have a sarafan, then put on a long skirt and a Russian scarf.  Russian headsets (Kokoshnik) will be provided.
