Volunteer

You can help us pull off this event without becoming a sponsor! Fill out the form below to volunteer your time to the Emerald Isle Irish Feile..

The success of Emerald Isle Irish Féile depends on our many dedicated volunteers. We always welcome new volunteers who are hard-working, flexible and know how to have fun! All Emerald Isle Irish Féile volunteers will receive tokens of appreciation for the time they volunteer, according to the amount of time they contribute.

  • Those volunteering 2-5 hours will receive a Féile tee shirt.
  • Those with 6-9 hours of volunteering will receive a Féile tee shirt and One half off on a weekend pass.
  • Volunteers who commit to 10+ hours will receive a tee shirt and a weekend pass for the Féile.

All volunteers must use the volunteer form on our website found here (Registration will be open by the end of April for the 2024 Festival)  to sign up as volunteers, whether they have previously signed up through Facebook, email, etc., please register and select the areas where you would like to assist.  You can click on the area or areas you wish to help with and then in the ‘additional comments’ field, you can enter the times you are available and what specifically you want to help with.

Here are the general areas where we will be seeking volunteers.

Hospitality: Volunteers in this category can enjoy meeting others while working in various capacities; greeting the boat/plane, assisting artists, preparing food, etc.

Host Family: Host families are essential as they provide housing and sometimes transportation to our many visiting artists/musicians.

Merchandise Sales: Volunteers will assist in preparing merchandise for sale, setting up merchandise displays and being salesclerks.

Registration: Able-bodied, assertive volunteers are needed to work the festival registration table which will be set up in a pop-up tent outside the Community Center. 

Set Up / Tear Down: Set up usually takes place the Wednesday before the Féile begins and Tear Down is usually the day after the event.

Miscellaneous: This is the box to check if you aren’t sure what you want to do and just want us to assign you where needed.  Also, if a committee member asks you to help on something specific that isn’t spelled out above, they will ask you to register under this category.

Go raibh maith agat: Thank You!
