We couldn’t pull off this amazing community event without help and lots of laughs from our dedicated team of volunteers. 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.
Help us with vendor check-in, traffic control, putting up signs, tents, tables, inflatables, etc. in order to be ready to welcome guests promptly upon opening.
The Information Booth is located in the intersection of Main and Center streets in the center of the fest. Volunteers in this area will help us answer questions about the campaign, where vendors are located, restaurants, restrooms, and a variety of other topics. The booth is equipped with maps, menus, and information binders to help find answers.
If you love having fun and playing, this is the place for you. The Kids Zone is located near Old Church Square on north Center Street. 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.
These friendly folks circulate around the festival greeting guests and answering questions. They may also be asked to take pictures and/or video of people and products for use after the event, or helping determine the number of people on a given street at a certain time.
The main attraction at the festival are the vendors, whose tents fill the streets. Volunteers in this role may help them with setting up, tearing down, restroom breaks, and other activities that help ensure their success.
Proceeds from our Michigan Beverage Garden support a local nonprofit. Volunteers are needed to sell tickets and wristbands, monitor exits, and serve drinks. Due to the fact that the majority of the beverages contain alcohol, volunteers must be 21 and over to work in this area.
Making effective use of social media during the event 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 ask you to take pictures and videos during the event.
Those available for a short shift from 5PM-7PM on Sunday may assist vendors in loading up, pack up the Information Booth, disassemble the Kids Zone, and other tasks to help us quickly restore downtown Northville to its adorable self.
Complete the application to get involved before or during the festival. Thanks!
