Are you interested in participating in one of the premier multi-cultural events of the year? The International Institute of Minnesota is now accepting applications for Festival of Nations volunteers! The Festival of Nations is celebrating its 85th year May 4-7 at the St. Paul RiverCentre. The Festival of Nations is the largest and longest running multicultural festival in Minnesota, celebrating cultural diversity with food, music, demonstrations, bazaar, exhibits, and dance. This annual celebration of our diverse community attracts 50,000 people each year. It would not be possible without the commitment of hundreds of volunteers who work a 3 or 4-hour shift staffing booths, helping with setup and teardown, cleaning tables, and greeting visitors. Volunteers will receive free admission to the Festival. Those working on Thursday or Friday during student hours (Thursday, 9-3 and Friday, 9:30-4:30) will receive a complimentary ticket for use over the weekend.

When signing up to volunteer, please note the tabs at the top of the page showing the different days for volunteering at the Festival. Choose the day, then the opportunity.
