Scandinavian Fest is a not-for-profit event to celebrate and promote the cultures, histories, and current life of the Nordic area countries.  It is staffed entirely by volunteers. If you would enjoy the satisfaction of helping to produce the largest Nordic event in the East, and possibly the country, please consider volunteering your help on the day of the Fest. The Fest needs people to help with Admissions, the Information Booth and to work to keep things on schedule at the  performance stages. 

Or - you might want to participate in the planning of the Fest through the year. 

Besides the satisfaction at supporting a worthwhile event and the fun of meeting and working with the other volunteers and other participants, volunteers of course receive free admission and priority parking.

If you are interested in receiving information about volunteer opportunities, please . . .
