Why Volunteer?


Why Volunteer at Peoria Irish Fest?

Read the Peoria Irish Fest Volunteer Handbook

Peoria Irish Fest would not be possible without the many volunteers who offer their time and talents to promote Irish culture, music, dance, and athletic games to our events in Central Illinois.

Many of our volunteers return year after year, some signing up whole families or groups. Many long- time volunteers have moved up to leadership positions in our organization.

For many years, Cheri has spent her whole summer making sure every past volunteer has been contacted, as well as recruiting new faces. For many volunteers, Cheri’s genuine smile is the first thing they see when they check in and pass through our gates.

In exchange for working a three hour shift, all volunteers receive free admission on the day[s] they work, two complimentary beverage tickets, and the opportunity to meet new friends, reunite with familiar faces, and create long lasting friendships and memories.

Does this sound like fun? We’d love to have you on board. Be sure to let us know if you have any special talents you’d like to share.
