Park Central Development is the producer of multiple special events in the Central Corridor. We produce Grove Fest, IndiHop and assist with the World Naked Bike Ride. We also produce an annnual fundraising Gala and will be bringing events to the Central West End and Bevo neighborhood.
All of our events are one day events. All volunteer shifts are two hours in length with the opportunity to sign up for more than one. In many cases, volunteers receive a commemorative t-shirt for serving. We are working to build our volunteer base.
When you indicate interest in volunteering for Park Central's department of special events, you will be contacted to see if you would like to work the next upcoming event. If there are events that do not appeal to you, just let us know! We will not ask you to consider volunteering.
