Volunteer With Madison Winter Festival


Our volunteers are the backbone of this event. We are looking to fill volunteer positions for many areas around Elver Park. No special experience required! You can sign up for various volunteer sessions that can be done in one day or spread over two or three days.

If you are part of a large group/organization that can provide 10+ volunteers, please email us directly at irina@winter-fest.com and we’ll be sure to get some details your way!

Your Shift, Parking and Check-In Details

We ask for a minimum commitment of at least 2 hours. All volunteer assignments are outdoors; you need to be able to help outside for a few hours at a time. Please take care of your own transportation.

IMPORTANT: We ask that volunteers please refrain from parking in the Elver Park parking lot. Free parking for volunteers will be located at 1233 McKenna Boulevard, Madison.

Those wanting to take the bus to Winter fest at Elver Park need to take route 50 boarding at the west transfer point only. The bus leaves every hour.

CHECK-IN: Please remember to check in 10-15 min prior to your volunteer shift at the Event Secretariat – Elver Park Shelter #2 in the area marked “registration”.
