Grafton Lake Winter Fest – Rensselaer County Events

 

Winter Fest needs you!

Have you ever volunteered on a snow bowling hill before?…
Join us for one of the many unique volunteer opportunities at Winter Fest!

Winter Fest will be here before you know it on January 28th & we need you to make it happen!  Without our volunteers, this event could never entertain thousands of Capital Region residents every January so please join us.

Volunteers receive meal tickets and the satisfaction of knowing they helped bring Capitol Region families and outdoor enthusiasts of all ages out into the park on a Winter day for fresh air and fun!  Before & after your shift, you can take part in all the event has to offer—exhibits, indoor & outdoor games, live animal presentations, polar plunge, food, carriage rides, snow bowling and so much more!  (Schedule will be released soon on Facebook!).

To volunteer, please look over the task list below and let us know your first and second pick for an activity/time slot, so I can find options for everyone.  We will select just one slot for you unless you request more. If you sign up, you will receive another email in January volunteering details. Some tasks work well for parents with older kids, so remember that volunteering can be part of your day and then you can enjoy the rest of the event as a family. To sign up or ask questions, please email elizabeth.wagner@parks.ny.gov.
