Join Our Team
We couldn’t pull off this amazing community event without help and lots of laughs from our dedicated team of volunteers. In addition to community teams that will be assisting with traffic control and cleanup, we invite individuals to lend their support as well. Apply and you can get in on the fun. It can also be a great way for students 16 and up to gain community service experience. Check out the different activities below so you can tell us if you have a preference on how to help.
This task is for early risers. We’ll ask you to join us sometime between 7AM-Noon on Saturday to help us with vendor check-in, putting up signs, setting up the children’s area, etc., in order to be ready to welcome guests promptly at Noon.
The Information Table is located inside the main entrance of the American 1 Event Center. Volunteers in this area will help us answer questions about the campaign, facilities, event schedule, and a variety of other topics. These volunteers will also invite guests to add their names to the Buy Michigan Now Pledge, which demonstrates the commitment of local residents to support Michigan-based companies.
If you love having fun and playing, this is the place for you. Volunteers in this area may help us keep the kids excited and entertained by doing crafts, playing games, running contests, escorting mascots, taking pictures, giving away prizes, and more.
The main attraction at the festival are the vendors. Volunteers in this role may help them with setting up, tearing down, restroom breaks, and other activities that help ensure their success.
Social Media Ambassadors
Making effective use of social media before, during, and after the fest is a great way for us to help draw more attention to Michigan-based businesses, which is what this event and our campaign is all about. If you’re active on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and/or Pinterest, we’d love to have you join us in person and/or online. We may even ask you to take pictures and videos during the event.
Complete the application to get involved before or during the fest. Thanks!
