Did you enjoy Erin Feis? Get more involved!
A festival like Erin Feis cannot be successful without the dedication of hundreds of community volunteers-people just like you who donate a few hours of their time and talents. Planning starts months in advance for each year’s event, then progresses to the work of building displays for our many exhibits, creating artistic displays and backgrounds, then days of setting up at RiverFront Park, all before the gates ever open. The three days of Erin Feis require ticket takers, stage hands, announcers, and so much more. Then once the final songs are sung and the last jig is danced, everything has to be taken down and packed away until next year.
All Erin Feis volunteers receive free admission on the day(s) they volunteer for a three hour shift, two complimentary drink tickets, and the opportunity to meet and work with a great bunch of people, not to mention all the fun they have and the terrific entertainment, music, food and drink. Those who volunteer for projects prior to the feis also receive the same. Many of our volunteers have returned year after year, some signing up whole families or groups. Some have gotten more involved as time goes on. And you don’t even have to be Irish! If you think you might like to join our crew of volunteers contact our Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@Erinfeispeoria.com and tell us you want to share in the fun. We’d be thrilled to have you!
