General Høstfest support:

Hundreds of volunteers are needed to help with setup and takedown, decorating, assisting with Scandi Kitchen tasks, welcoming visitors, scanning and selling tickets, selling Høstfest merchandise, and, of course, to scooping delicious hard ice cream.


We are looking for people who are handy with tools! The “Tool Box Crew” is needed before the festival during setup (usually the week before) and during move-out (Saturday night/Sunday and Monday after the festival) to help take down display pieces.


And many more! We have hundreds of areas in which you can volunteer, from decorating to serving food to welcoming guests! Check out the application and merely select what interests you! Thank you for your help!
