Why and How to Volunteer

Volunteerism is at the heart of every Zimfest – volunteers help organize and run this entire festival! You can help now, later, or both!

Consider Helping Now, In Advance of the Festival

  • Zimfest needs help with all kinds of tasks. See the list of Ongoing Volunteer Needs on this page.
  • Contact us now! Use the Volunteer Contact Form below to offer your help any time before the festival.
  • The Zimfest 2025 Organizing Committee will likely form in late 2024 and continue its volunteer efforts through the 2025 festival weekend. Let us know if you would like to join us on the OC.
