Festival Volunteers Needed


The Grotto’s 31st Annual Christmas Festival of Lights begins Friday, Nov. 23, and is open nightly through Sunday, Dec. 30. (Except Christmas Day.)

Over 800 volunteers are needed to run the Festival operations each night. We are currently seeking volunteers to help in many areas such as greeters, petting zoo helpers, ticket takers, chapel assistants and gift shop helpers, just to name a few. Most positions are outside, among the lights, but there are some indoor positions.

This is also a great opportunity to volunteer with your family or friends.

Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who make the Festival possible!
