Become a 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.

Volunteers enjoy:

  • An invitation to our annual “Appreciation Party” – a special evening (Wednesday, November 20th) where you’ll be the first to see the trees and have an exclusive opportunity to purchase two-for-one raffle tickets.
  • 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 as a volunteer, think about how you would like to help and when you can help.

Once you register and receive a username and password, you’ll be able to access the Festival Volunteer System to select the week during which you’d like to volunteer, the day/shift you’d like to volunteer, and the position for which you’d like to volunteer. You’ll only see those positions that are available for the day/shift you selected. For every position you select, the system will record your availability and notify the Festival Volunteer Team. You can repeat this process for as many days/shifts as you’re able to offer.
