East Somerville Main Streets

East Somerville Main Streets in collaboration with the Somerville Arts Council and the City of Somerville Somerstreets will host its 10 th annual CARNAVAL on Sunday, June 2 nd from 2pm-6pm on Broadway.

Last year the festival attracted about 6,000 visitors from East Somerville and the greater Boston area, making it the most successful Carnaval to date! Streets were closed to cars, but open to thousands of people to enjoy awesome music, performances from community groups, children's activities, and food from all over the world.

We depend on volunteers to make this event truly successful. We are looking for volunteers throughout the event for the following areas:

  • Table Set-Up and Break down
  • Performer and volunteer check-in
  • Green room monitor
  • Dunk Tank helpers
  • Mask making
  • Event photographer (experience necessary)
  • Opening parade marshal
  • Stage Managers
  • Bouncy house monitors
  • Event survey distributers
  • And more...

Interested volunteers should contact Jen Atwood at Please include name, contact info and preferred volunteer position and preferred volunteer shift times.

Thank you,
