Festival Opens This Friday!


The Grotto’s Christmas Festival of Lights opens this Friday and WE NEED YOU!

The Grotto’s Christmas Festival of Lights would not be possible without the help and support of hundreds of volunteers.

Volunteers greet visitors, help in the retail shops, the food booth, the petting zoo, or assist in the hospitality kitchen. Most positions are outdoors where volunteers can enjoy the decorations, hear the music and interact with guests, but some indoor positions are available. Festival of Lights volunteer opportunities are wonderful for individuals, families, church communities, school groups, club members, and business groups. Come volunteer with a friend or bring the whole family.

Each volunteer receives two free admission coupons to The Festival to share or use on another night.

There are two volunteer shifts nightly (the first shift is from 4:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m., and the later shift is from 7:15 p.m.-10:00 p.m.) Many volunteers enjoy this event so much they sign up for multiple nights.

Please contact Agnes Zueger, our Volunteer Manager at 503-261-2433 or email for more information.
