Event Volunteers
Volunteer for Christmas in the Garden

The Oregon Garden hosts a variety of special events each year. These events help to provide support to the Garden, introduce the Garden to new visitors and provide fun and exciting events for our visitors and Garden Members. These events rely on volunteers to help make them as productive as possible. Your warm and welcoming assistance at these events are a part of the visitor experience and our guests appreciate your cheerful service.

Volunteering at special events is great for those whose schedules make it hard to commit to a monthly volunteer schedule. It is also a great way for our regularly scheduled volunteers to try something new and share their love of the Garden with new visitors.

 

Upcoming Events

Volunteer positions for events are generally opened 6 weeks before the event date. Brewfest (June 16th – 18th) has a separate scheduling process. Please visit our Volunteer at Brewfest page for full information.

We are currently recruiting for the following events:

  • Earth Day

For a full list of our events, please see our Events page.

 

Volunteer Positions

Positions at events vary but can include Greeter, Information Booth, Children’s Activity Area, Server (Brewfest), Admissions Support, Backstock, Line Control, etc. We also need volunteers to assist with set up and tear down of events. Volunteer shifts are generally 4 hours and include a check-in and event briefing for each shift.
