Calling All Volunteers!

July 2, 2018

 UTICA NY – The Great American Irish Festival needs you!

The Great American Irish Festival is right around the corner, and that means it’s time to assemble the great army of volunteers that make the festival succeed year after year.

The festival depends on hundreds of dedicated volunteers, working before, during and after the weekend, through sun, rain and even tornados, all to ensure that attendees and entertainers alike come away with great memories of our festival.

Several venues could use your help, and of course, volunteering 8 hours of your time over the course of the weekend makes you eligible to get some great perks, including free admission all weekend, a festival volunteer t-shirt, and an invitation to the post-festival volunteer party.

If you are interested in volunteering at this year’s festival, fill out the volunteer sign-up form. They especially need volunteers willing to work Friday and Saturday evenings from 8 PM to midnight. Most shifts are four hours at a time and some may require standing for long periods, but all are an integral part of making the Great American Irish Festival such a great experience.
