Can we count on you to volunteer this year? All volunteers receive a Día de los Muertos Festival T-Shirt, lunch provided, healthy snacks & water throughout the day.  

We are in need of hundreds of volunteers to help for 3-4 hour shifts from 6am - 6pm. We have exciting opportunities that can work with your availability!
