Every year, our festival relies on 500+ volunteers to help produce the festival with a group of 40+ volunteers working year-round. To make this year a success, we need your help! Volunteers come back every year to donate their precious time from logistics(event production) to the parade. We use people of all ages and skills. If you are a Bi-lingual Japanese speaker, let us know and we will get you on board. Here are some opportunities to help at the festival:
