Become a Festival Volunteer

Volunteers are the backbone of the Festival of Trees. When you volunteer, you bring the joy of the Holiday season to thousands of visitors, and you join a group of dedicated people who have fun while they help make the Festival a truly magical community event.

Please be assured, we are taking many precautions to ensure the health and safety of our volunteers, including providing masks, plexiglass barriers, hand sanitizer and gloves as needed.

Volunteers enjoy:

  • An invitation for you and one guest to our annual “Appreciation Party” – a special evening (Thursday, November 18th) where you’ll be the first to see the trees and have an exclusive opportunity to purchase two-for-one raffle tickets. (*Note, you must attend a Volunteer Training session to attend the Appreciation event.)
  • A free admission ticket to visit the Festival at your convenience.
  • The opportunity to become a special part of one of New England’s most successful Holiday events.

Before you utilize our Online Volunteer System to register, please read through all position descriptions, and think about how and when you can help.

Signing up is easy! Access our new user-friendly Signup Genius site and see all the available volunteer positions for the entire Festival.

All volunteers are required to attend a training session prior to the start of the Festival. Once you have signed up for your selected volunteer slot(s), we ask that you also sign up for a training session. If you have signed up for an iPad role, please be sure to select a training session for iPad users.

If you have any questions or problems, please contact volunteer@methuenfestivaloftrees.com or call/text 978-806-4728.
