Thank you for your interest in volunteering for this year's Day on the Bay - A Multicultural Festival, co-sponsored event by Santa Clara County Supervisor Otto Lee and the Santa Clara County Parks Department. This event takes place Saturday, October 8, 2022, from 10am to 3pm, but volunteers are needed all day for set up, running the event, and tear down. We also need volunteers for setup on Friday and for additional tear down on Sunday. Snacks and water will be provided to our volunteers throughout the event!

Volunteer tasks may include event setup; guest greeters; line management and staging; event activity support (including free kayak rides, boat rides, free pumpkins, etc.); VIP parking management; on-site activity registration; vendor check in and support; and/or event tear down.

This fun-filled festival along the South Bay shores of Alviso features a health resource fair, mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinic and flu shots, and a festive celebration of our diverse cultures. Other activities include free pumpkins for kids, music, entertainment, free kayak rides, and much, much, more!

Not many residents know about the historic waterfront town of Alviso. Day on the Bay is "Alviso's most-attended event," according to the San Jose Mercury News.
