Preparations for this years’  Milwaukee Irish Fest are now underway!  Volunteers have been the success of Irish Fest, and we are very fortunate to have you work with us.  Our hope is that you will join us this year, as well also welcome our new volunteer recruits!  Irish Fest 2019 runs from Thursday, August 15 thru Sunday, August 18.

We Need your help!  Click here to sign-up now!

Youth Volunteers and Pirate Paddy Passport share a need for volunteers.  They have a natural synergy.  Pirate Paddy Passport is a great way for young families to introduce kids to the joy of volunteering and being part of a wonderful event.  From there kids can try new and different jobs, learn about set-up for the festival, and find ways to be part of our year round events.

Pirate Paddy Passport is a great fit for families of kids as young as 2, adults looking for a shorter shift out of the sun, and with comfortable seating and youth volunteers looking for service hours.  Locations are all over the grounds near free family activities.  All have either a small trinket or craft to entertain visiting kids.  Shifts are 3 hours.  sign-up

Children’s Area is a great place for volunteers who enjoy working with children.  Click here to sign-up for shifts.

Tea Room is a great place for older kids to work in a fast paced environment. You must be over 13 unless you are working with a trusted adult and have arranged in advance with the coordinators to work.   Lots of fun, but don’t forget your hairnet or hat!

Set-Up/Take-Down and behind the scenes.    Information for volunteering is HERE

In appreciation of your time and effort, you will receive complimentary tickets to the Grand Hooley Gathering on Thursday, August 17th; free admission to the festival the day you are scheduled, food coupons, and a $5 off coupon for parking.

If you have any questions, please contact me by email at lizsanders29@gmail.com, or by phone Liz (414)698-3018

Sincerely, Your Coordinator,

Liz Sanders
