I’ve picked out a few of the volunteering opportunities; check out to view dozens of others or to register to become a volunteer!

Asian Festival – Dragon Boat Marshall: if you haven’t seen the Dragon Boat races yet, you’re missing out. And you can’t watch from a closer place than dockside helping people enter and exit the boats!

asian festColumbus Arts Festival - Hands-On Art Assistant: this is a really neat opportunity to work under the direction of some of Columbus’ most talented artistic groups to help children and adults complete art projects on-site.

Sail-A-Bration at the Santa Maria – Greeter: welcome people to the awesome fashion show and children’s activities and hand out programs to all of the attendees.

Solebrate! Food & Music Fest – Adult Beverage Server: who hasn’t wanted to be on the other side of the bar? Serve beer and wine redeemed with wristbands.

rwb Red, White & Boom – Parade Section Leader: be a part of the parade and get some great exercise at the same time. This is an awesome way to experience the crowds and the performers from the best location!
