Enjoy watching our lawn and ridgeline fill with colorful kites this fall at the Friends of Mill Ridge Park's Bi-Annual Kite Fest. We need your help with a variety of tasks that may include welcoming park visitors, assembling kites, demonstrating proper kite flying etiquette, facilitating lawn games, replenishing snacks and beverages, and post-event cleanup. Instructions and support for volunteers will be available onsite by park staff. Check in upon arrival at the welcome table for specific role information and supplies.

To ensure your safety and comfort throughout the day, please wear comfortable shoes for grassy, uneven terrain. Prepare for light exposure to the sun and bugs (sunscreen and bug spray provided). Snacks, beverages, and portable toilet are available onsite. Feel free to bring your own water bottle to cut down on plastic waste!

Kite Fest takes place at Mill Ridge Park in Antioch, TN during the spring and fall seasons. Volunteers are needed every Saturday throughout the month of October. All day or half day (10:30AM-1PM or 1PM-3:30PM) shifts are available.

The event space will be marked with orange cones, yellow flags, and a Kite Fest sign at the driveway entrance. Volunteers will park in the grass along the gravel drive, across from the red barns.
