The Oswegoland Park District is seeking a whole crew of volunteers to help host the annual PrairieFest community celebration set for June 15-18 at PrairieFest Park in Oswego. Adults, as well as youth aged 12 and up, are invited to give a couple of hours to coordinating the festival over Father’s Day weekend.

Each volunteer shift is two to three hours.

Junior high students can help keep the festival grounds safe and clean as a ground crew members, while high school and college students can be on the parking crew. Adult volunteers are always needed to help greet festival guests, serve beer, or drive courtesy shuttles. Additional volunteer opportunities include the helping with Sunday’s 5K PrairieFest race or the parade.

All volunteers will receive the green 2017 volunteer T-shirt. Youth volunteers earn community service credit towards their scholastic, athletic or religious commitments.

Sign-up is available through the PrairieFest website. Interested volunteers are encouraged to visit prairiefest.com/volunteers to schedule their PrairieFest shift. For additional questions, contact the volunteer coordinator, Cori Veverka, at cveverka@oswegolandpd.org or 630-554-4433.
