Join the Irish Fest Volunteer Team!
The success of Irish Fest New Orleans depends on the generous help of dedicated volunteers. We always welcome new volunteers who are hard-working, flexible and know how to have fun! All Irish Fest volunteers will receive tickets to the festival and access to the hospitality area.
- Set Up takes place the morning of the festival. We need able-bodied volunteers who are willing to help set up in the early morning hours.
- Take Down happens all in one day, the evening of the fest. A large group of volunteers are needed from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Prepare and serve desserts, Irish Coffee, coffee and tea, clean tables or cashier at one of these festival favorites.
If you are a knowledgeable lover of Irish culture, you may be able to volunteer in our Cultural Village area.
Children's Activity Area
Supervise children and help with fun crafts and games that expose wee ones to Irish culture, storytelling, music and more. Background checks are required for all volunteers in this area.
Beer, Wine and Soda Servers
Serve beer, wine or soda to thirsty fest-goers. Our most popular position, volunteers who sign up to serve beer may end up on a waitlist.
