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 24th and Sunday, February 25th 2018.
